We had been to four other hotels in the area, but they were either sold out Or so close to it that the remaining rooms were pricey.
The front desk at another hotel nearby actually referred us to this place. After finding it we were happy to get a room for a great price and to be able to get a king bed for just $6 more.
The young lady at the front desk was very helpful and gave us a real map (not just a photocopy with limited detail) and directions to several local events happening that evening.
Our room was great! Clean and bright with fresh linens. The room we had was near the end of the hotel and there was some faint highway noise even with the window shut -- but it did not affect our sleep. The bed was comfortable enough, although pillows were very puffy/squishy (some like that but it's not for me!).
We did not use the pool but the hot tub was comfortable, although definitely not meant for more than 3 adults (comfortably anyway).
We stayed initially for one night, and then extended our stay for a second. When we extended our stay the desk staff made sure we knew our keys would expire based on the initial one-night stay, and made sure we received new keys before leaving the hotel.
Overall we were quite happy with this stay.
