My family just stayed here over the weekend (2/7) and the room was very clean and satisfactory. We did not try the breakfast, but I heard it was good. The only complaint I have is the pool. The hotel was so crowded that we did not enjoy the pool and/or hot tub. We tried to get in the hot tub,...

If we're ever back in the area we would definitely stay here again. The accommodations seem like they are above what is expected from an Econo Lodge. We have spent much more money on a nights stay at other facilities that weren't even close in comparison. The only gripe we had here is other guests smoking "outside" in the small,...

This was a great hotel to stay at! Checking in was fast and easy with friendly employees working behind the counter. The breakfast was great and so was the hotel location.

My family has stayed at many different hotels in town over the years. This was the best value for the amenities, cleanliness and convenience. It is hard to find an American operated hotel that is up to date, and clean. We will stay here for future visits. I highly recommend it.
