To say the least, I was NOT impressed upon check-in! This place is in the process of becoming a La Quinta, and they are renovating the entire lobby! There was no flooring of any kind, and we had to wind our way with suitcases back to the elevator, which we weren't sure was working since the alarm for it had been going off a few moments earlier.
Alas, I got to my room and was pleasantly surprised! The only rooms left were with two queen (or double?) beds versus the king beds from the last two hotels. Fine by me!
I only have two complaints: one is that the bathroom, while clean enough, did have the one thing in life that drives me nuts--hair on the sink!! Not just one long woman's hair or something I can deal with, but definitely a man's beard hair! Gross! It seemed to be only around the faucet handles towards the back of the sink, as well as near the plastic object where they stack the shampoo/soap/etc. I laid down a towel and put all my things on it instead of on the counter.
The other is that there are no plugs in between the beds on the nightstand. I ended up plugging my phone into the wall and laying it next to me on the bed, since it doubles as my alarm clock. Not a big deal, just one of those little extra things I like to have in hotels.
Otherwise, a good night's rest was had by all. The location is convenient to the highway, and there are plenty of options around for dinner. Breakfast was fine with healthy options, but the waffle making machine was broken by the time I got to breakfast, and the waffle iron was acting up. My Dad attempted a waffle but only half of it cooked.
