DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY! The prices are horrendous and the food worse. There are several nearby restaurants to choose from and I would definitely recommending walking/driving the short distance to take advantage of them.

Food was mediocre for dinner, the supposed full breakfast buffet way over priced very limited and no service. Go elsewhere.

This Restaurant, located off the lobby of the hotel has excellent food, good prices and great service. There is no need to drive to go elsewhere.

First, let me say that the people at this hotel and restaurant seem like capable, service-oriented people who are almost ashamed to serve the patrons because they know what's coming. It has to be deadly to their tips, and for that I'm sorry. With that said.......

The "free" breakfast is abysmal at Paynters. The morning we ate there (we only did it once), the "free" breakfast lasted from 6:30 - 9:30 am and consisted of scrambled eggs in a pan (which were fresh and hot), pre-made pancakes in a pan (thick and pretty rubbery, with syrup but no butter), a pot of coffee with to-go lids, and self-serve cereal and whole/skim milk. That's it. No bacon or sausage, no biscuits, no danish, no toast, no juices, no yogurt.......VERY limited selection.

We should have suspected this, as we ate dinner here the first night we arrived.....and at 8:00 pm on a Friday night, myself and my 6 yr old were the ONLY people in the restaurant besides one waitress (who was very good and lavished her attention on us as the sole customers at that time). After about 30 minutes, another couple walked in and sat down, while another walked in and then left before being seated. The food was very industrial, unimaginative, and without a lot of selection. It appeared that several sauces (such as marinara) appeared in several dishes. The salad bar was small but fresh. Quality was not as big an issue as were menu options and fresh foods/variety. Clearly, if you were not staying there, you would not willingly go there for dinner....a revamped menu with more choices that were better prepared would do wonders for this place. The tables, service and decor are fine....the menu and preparation are not up to par with the rest. There is a bar, which had several people in it, but better food and perhaps some entertainment may help draw more interest. There are options such as fast food and steakhouses nearby.
