My family stayed here on August 17, 2012 and August 25, 2012, both going and returning from the Outer Banks. I chose this hotel because of the reasonable price, free breakfast, pool and exercise room.
Both visits went good but there were a few things that could have made our stay even better. Our first night they were having a problem with the hot water and we had to bath our 16 month old in luke-warm water. The problem was fixed the next morning. The other disappointment was when we arrived we could not get a room on the same floor as my sister. The hotel was not sold out but it seemed they didn't want to have to do extra paperwork. I found this annoying but for one night it wasn't a big deal. I requested that the following week we be on the same floor and the staff member did arrange that, although we were at opposite ends of the hallway. I did forget toothpaste (buried in the car) the second night and they were kind enough to bring some samples up for us.
The room we were given the first night must have been handicapped accessible, because it was considerably larger than my sister's. We had a regular room on our second stay, and while it was still big it wasn't as spacious as our first room. We had a king room both nights and our beds were very comfortable, as was the bedding. There was also a mini fridge, microwave and coffee pot which was convenient.
Our first room seemed to have been remodeled when compared to our second room. Both were very clean.
The breakfast was decent, just enough to get us on our way. There was a waffle maker, bacon, eggs, assorted breads you could toast yourself, warm oatmeal (pretty good with optional toppings), cereals, milk, juices, water and coffee. The dining room is fairly small but both times we managed to get a table as another group was leaving. They did have at least two toddler booster seats that I saw.
We didn't get to use the pool but other family members did and they liked it. I used the fitness center both times and thought it was well equipped for a small hotel. There were two treadmills, a bike and an elliptical. There was also a weight machine.
Overall we were pleased with this hotel and would recommend it to others. It is in a convenient location off the highway, with lots of restaurants and other stores around.
