Checked in about an hour before 4PM as needed to be on road to a wedding by 4. Room was spacious, clean, and very inviting. Check in & check out were hassle free. No problems with a/c, toilet, shower or anything else. View wasn't great (room 213) but we weren't staying in room for that. Breakfast had a good variety of items. Inclsing waffles, scarmbled eggs, sausauge patties, bagels, toast, fruit, yogurt, cereal coffee, tea, and juice.
No complaints here. They offer many things most hotels do not. Basketball court, patio area with fire pit. Which is turned off at 11pm, we understood the need for that kind of policy. A very quite area with a gas station near by. The hotel had the typical market place with items for sale, candy, snacks, beer, etc. Check in and out was quick.
We stayed here due to a nearby wedding we attended. They offer a great price for rooms booked in a block for a wedding. I assume this can be pricey, but worth it. Our room had the full kitchenette, sofa, desk, comfortable bed and very clean. Nice lobby area with many seats, tables suitable for small and large groups for complimentary breakfast. Nothing over the top about breakfast, but offered many options, a few out of the norm; including turkey sausage and tortillas. Even though it’s off the beaten downtown path, this would be a place I’d recommend staying.
