From the start I was wary of this hotel due to our experience when reserving the room on the day we checked in. We called to request one room with our military/dod discount. The desk clerk tried to say that they don't offer the discount. When we started to argue with her and asked for a manager she swore under her breath using the name "Jesus" as a swear word. We hung up and called CHOICE Hotels. They assured us they DO have the discount and booked our reservation.
We checked in to the hotel and went to dinner. Upon our return we went to the room only to discover most of the lights didn't work, there was a fist size hole in the bathroom door where a previous guest had punched it,. the microwave was missing, the phone didn't work, and worst of all, the room had a very bad musty stale smell that set off my asthma. My husband and I went to the front desk and the clerk offered to refund our money. Since it was late at night we said "no" and asked if there was anything else at all. She offered us another room where the light was out over the dressing area. We decided to take it. This room was much much better. The carpeting was clean (it had just been shampooed), furniture was on top of the bed and the bed wasn't made except for the sheets/pillows. I requested clean lennen and we made the beds ourselves. After that, we had a comfortable night.
I can't say much about the breakfast. It's very limited. We didn't use the pool since it was storming the night we came.
As long as you get one of the good rooms you're okay. It's an okay place for a one-night stay.
