Spacious room although it was a little smelly. Staff was pleasant. Ample parking, close to freeway easy access. Breakfast is included and cooked on site. Your vehicle can be parked right in front of your room door.

We were very pleased with our stay here. Had some time to kill on our trip and we were able to check in early and relax a bit. Rooms were nice size and very quiet for for being close to busy streets. We've traveled across the US staying in budget rooms & this was the best stop yet!

The staff is helpful and friendly. They want to make their guests welcome! The grounds are clean. The areas are well lighted at night. The parking lot is in good condition. The lobby holiday decorations are a real nice touch. The complimentary breakfast is also nice.

I have consistently stayed at Vacation Inn for years including their suite. I have always found the staff warm and welcoming. Rarely a need for repair is discovered and quickly fixed. With or without reservations, they are always accommodating to any specific needs. Thanks to all!

Made reservations through this site and arrived at the location but my reservation wasn't available. Had a bit of a longer experience than had anticipated since I figured I had already made prior arrangements. Overall, rather quick and was able to secure a room at the same rate as on the app. The location is much too hot during the...
