All of the staff, from the front desk person, housekeeping, and breakfast lady were incredibly friendly. Our room was very quiet. The bed, sheets, pillows, and comforter were all comfy and cozy and clean.

We liked the friendly staff. The lighting in the room was the best we've had in a long time. The location is perfect if you want to hop back on the Interstate. The bathroom was a problem however. Because the lip on the walk-in shower was so low and the drain not adequate, the bathroom basically flooded when you took a shower. And the counter space for any toiletries is miniscule even though the room is large. A particular shout-out to the breakfast staff: the coffee/hot water machine is complicated, especially if you haven't had your coffee, and they go out of their way to make sure you get what you want. They were unusually attentive.

the property seems fairly new and in overalll good condition . There is a party room in a separate uidling in the back and when the music is up loud it is easily heard in the rooms . Avoid 136 and closeby rooms unless you like the bass from the party room shaking your pillow.
