We found this hotel to be very good. I'm confused by some of the earlier reviews. Our room was updated, had an LCD television, microwave and refrigerator. The room and the property were very clean and comfortable. The staff we met were friendly enough and helpful with suggestions.
The breakfast area was very nice. The eating area was separated from the food pickup area, which made it less crowded and a much more pleasant experience. There was a wide selection of items - cereal, waffles, yogurt, fruit, breakfast sandwiches, bagels, english muffins, muffins. Everything was well stocked and the area was neat and clean.
The hotel is very close to Exit #398 on I 40, but we found it to be very quiet as it is far enough away from the highway. There were quite a few restaurants in the area, but nothing spectacular - Cracker Barrel and a number of the standard fast food restaurants.
In addition, the price was lower than the rest of the Marriott properties in the area. It's definitely far away from the tourist areas and the national park - a positive or a negative, depending on your travel plans. I liked that it was out of the tourist area and all the crowds, I'd stay here again.
