For the price it was great. We were driving cross country and stayed the night. Very clean and comfortable. The one bummer was that everything closed at 10 like the restaurant and the pool and we got there at 10:05 and we were hungry and had been in the car all day but we were too late. Breakfast was not complimentary or appetizing looking. We didn't eat there. But the staff was really nice and the room was spacious and the bathroom was very clean as overall it was a very comfortable night sleep.

Fitness room had 4 treadmills but only 2 worked. Vent/Fan was very noisy when it turned on and off. Breakfast was bare bones on both days because there wasn't enough staff to cover the amount of people. First day was terrible as there was an entire college track team but only one staff person that took care of front desk and breakfast area restock. With one hour left to go in breakfast scheduled hours there was absolutely no food left.
"Very nice hotel with excellent service at the desk"
Great service at the desk, cordial cleaning staff. very nice room. The only complaint was the heavy traffic in the room above. It was nonstop stomping back and forth both nights. I'm a heavy gentleman but whoever was above me should have been placed on the ground floor. Yikes! I hope to stay at the hotel again but will request a 3rd floor room in order to eliminate the fear of the ceiling crashing in on me.
Uncovering the entrance behind the other hotel and the Machine Shed Restaurant was awkward but I eventually got to the hotel
