"Quick Getaway"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Room was clean and right on the pkwy. It was an okay location. At best a two star. Upon check in one of the clerks was telling the maintenance man someone wanted the trash taken out. His reply was tell her to blank in one hand and see what gets done first. So when my TV remote didnt work I didnt ask for it to be fixed. For the price I paid not what I expected. I had called a comfort inn but their price was well over $200 a night so THEY suggested this place and made the reservations. I found later I could have booked it cheaper even though the lady told me my discounts wouldnt match this deal. Lesson learned.Family said breakfast was good.

"Great location anyway."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Good shower, fridge and AC, cable TV had no HD channels, wi fi was almost worthless, bed was a bit too firm for me, front desk and other employees were friendly and helpful. Ignore the free breakfast.

"60's style hotel, and very noisy."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
We were not impressed by this hotel and do not plan to use it again. We went at a very busy time of the year. The noise levels were above average. Room was next to pool and close to main highway. We had to call one time to have people in the pool quieted after midnight. Breakfast room was very small and didn't start until 8 am. By then it was like a herd of locust trying to get to the food. Coffee was not available until that time too, except for the personal pot in your room. My husband poured his out after one taste of it. McDonalds a short distance down the street. Room was clean enough. had to ask for more towels all the time.
