If you just want a cheap place to crash for the night and quick exit from the highway, this one is for you. But, if you expect friendly service and comfort, go somewhere else.
You would think with the list of amenities that this is a decent mid-level place to stay. Think again.
The clerk, same in pm and am, was not friendly or helpful at any point. I felt like it was putting him out to find a non-smoking room with easy ground level access... even with an almost empty lot and early in the evening.
After a 700+ mile drive I really didn't care if I had a single king bed or 2 queens as long as it was a clean non-smoking room. I almost ended up going somewhere else because I had to suggest the option myself.
While I was at the counter, someone called to cancel, and he was abrupt and very short with the caller, and made the nature of their business apparent to anyone in the room. He did not mention the complimentary breakfast or the times it would be offered. No mention about any other features or services available.
If you have allergies or sinus issues be aware the rooms are heavily perfumed. I had to run both the bathroom vent/fan and the a/c all night to keep it at bay... and kept the door open a while too.
The coffee maker has no dispenser... apparently by design... when I inquired I was told to make coffee into a tiny paper cup provided and the clerk began to detail how to make hotel coffee.
And, you could either have coffee or light. There were not enough plugs for both and no extension cord.
WiFi access is there, but where do you plug in your laptop to keep it charged if you use it? And how about charging your cell while travelling?
There was a solid metal frame under the bed. It stuck out more than an inch all the way around the bed, but was covered by the spread. I "found" it by stubbing my toe against it when readying to sleep... and yes, it did get bloody.
Furniture was crammed into a much too small room and there was barely a path to walk around the beds. And, what's with the full wall mirror next to the beds??
Complimentary newspapers were stacked out of sight on the counter and no offer was made to anyone who came in for breakfast. Breakfast was basic at best. The room was half finished and the tv at one end and clearly intended for the entertainment of the clerk and not guests. Supply boxes were stacked against one wall. The refrigerator evidently used for supplies was located next to the counter and double-locked.
This hotel is listed as pet-friendly. I travel with a well-behaved cocker and have never had any problems. There was no defined agreement, but the clerk was pretty emphatic verbally about what would NOT be tolerated and what "some people" do. He went on and on until I finally told him I would only be staying the night and would be leaving early the next morning. There were signs all around the landscaping indicating that dogs were not allowed and would be subject to fines.
These seem like small objections? This is just the tip of the iceberg. Too many little things that added up to a less than pleasant overnight stay to mention.
I've stayed in hundreds of hotels over the years, both for business and personal travel. This one ranks among the most memorable, but not for positive reasons.
