“Not recommended.”
Reviewed 18 August 2011

We planned for 3 days, left after 2 days... Rooms need an upgrade, the pool was nice but a little dirty. They say they have grab-n-go breakfast but this is only apples, bars and bad coffee. They have a restaurant tough so if you are ready to pay for breakfast, this was good for us. We were a family of 4 and the rooms were too small, too old, too humid, oh well...

The first room we were assigned reeked of sour milk and had an obvious crusty stain on the floor between the 2 beds. The front desk clerk gave us the only other available room which had mildew on the baseboards.... When we saw the desk clerk enter the first room with a can of air freshener we decided to make-do with option #2 though if we had not been so travel weary we would have changed hotels all together.

Hotel was clean, and what you would expect in a basic hotel room. Breakfast was not much to speak of. The pub that is part of the hotel has 5 keiths beer for $15, and the bartender will gladly stick around to keep the beer flowing. Had a great time here and a great meal too. Make use of the pub if you stay here.

Motel is old, tired & in need of a complete re-vamp, but it was acceptable. How worn does a lobby have to get before it gets a facelift? Hallway carpets seemed to be recent, & our room had been re-done. Fairly new furniture, bed, carpet, bathroom fixtures, so we had no complaint. A quiet sleep for 1 night, but don't expect something you will not find. Major complaint is the advertised "continental breakfast". Really? A folding table in the lobby with a coffee pot, hot water, & some nutri-grain & rice krispy bars. That's it. Why bother? It's an insult if you can't do better than this, which only underscores the non-existent consistency of the Choice Hotels brand. Or lack thereof as the case may be.

Hotel tries to put on a brave face but it is old & tired.

Rooms are adequate but feel like old crummy motel rooms, small bathrooms, 15 coats of paint on doors with carpet and spreads designed to hide dirt.

I always wonder when I see excellent ratings on TripAdvisor How many are submitted by management, because those people weren't staying at the same place I was.... This hotel seems to have a couple of those entries...

I wouldn't go out of my way to stay here again
