I did not choose this hotel; it was the hotel of choice for a wedding party, and I was fortunate to be a part of that. However, if I stayed in this area again, I would definitely choose this hotel! We were treated to a "suite," which included a sitting area with sofa, easy chair, desk, TV, microwave, and fridge, then beyond the bathroom were two queen-sized beds with another TV. The only negative I would voice is that the bathroom is all-inclusive, with poor lighting over the vanity. I prefer a bathroom that has a vanity outside the shower and toilet area. Given the layout of this room/suite, that would not have been feasible. Just a personal preference, and nothing against the hotel.
The hotel is directly across the street from Wal-Mart, and my adult daughter and I felt perfectly safe walking across the street to stock up on some food items. There is a Cracker Barrel just down the street, as well as several other chain restaurants (Ruby Tuesday across the street, Steak & Shake, McDonald's, Burger King, and several others).
The staff were friendly and helpful; the indoor pool/whirlpool area was nice and clean; the rooms and hallways were extremely clean and quiet. We did not eat in the first-floor restaurant, but only because I typically find that restaurants within hotels are fairly expensive.
All in all, this was a very pleasant stay, and I would definitely recommend the hotel and stay here again!
