If you want the reliability of a big international hotel chain in a town with lots of motels then this is a good choice. We booked a deluxe room which was on the 4th floor with good views over the town. It was clean and modern, with air conditioning, a good choice of tv channels, a spacious bathroom with a shower over the bath, and a good wifi signal - there was 30 minutes free wifi per device in the lobby, but we could pick this up from our room too, then you have to pay for further access.
The restaurant was large and busy - as you'd expect for a hotel this size.
If you'd prefer to dine out, the hotel is quite a way out from the main eateries so be prepared to drive or get a taxi, although the hotel operates a shuttle service until 9pm.
Overall a good and seemingly reliable choice of place to stay - a little corporate and slow on service at times, and location not great for walking to have a drink or to eat hence 4 not 5 stars.
