The hotel is just off I-77, and there are quite a few restaurants around. We were greeted in a warm and friendly manner. As others have stated, the room was quite clean and acceptable. We had flat-screen TVs both times in July we stayed at the hotel, despite what a previous rater said. We appreciated the AAA discount, too. Each comfortable queen-size bed comes with four pillows--two soft and two firm.
Some people might like to know more specifics about the breakfast. It was VERY nice. Here's what we can remember: scrambled eggs and sausage, biscuits and gravy, pancakes, a variety of cereals, oatmeal, bagels, English muffins, toast, cinnamon rolls, orange juice and other juices, coffee, tea, whole milk, 2% milk, chocolate milk, fat-free milk, yogurt, and bananas. Very attentive staff members do an excellent job of keeping things available.
The only thing preventing us from giving this otherwise excellent hotel the top rating was the fact that on our second visit, one of the two keys did not work at all, even after being re-programmed. Much worse than that was the fact that the other key failed over and over to open the door at the rear of the hotel. We had just had a drive of 435 miles and it was exasperating to have the key fail some 15-20 times before finally causing the little green light to come on and the door to be ready to open. This is something the hotel needs to get on right away.
