Once we got there the hotel was good and the staff helpful but, my God, GETTING there!!??!! We arrived late at night after a long drive. Northbound on the interstate there was no signage at all so we missed the exit and had a 12-mile round trip to come back. Southbound there was a sign but off the interstate you could not see the motel or clearly make out the sign and had to proceed by best guess and dead-reckoning. Finally we saw the motel - perhaps 1/2 mile off the interstate - and from there it became a maze of parking lots, other motels, and restaurants until we arrived. (there is an easier way but we only learned about it upon leaving and then a hotel employee went out to the parking lot to point it out to us!).
I expressed my displeasure with our now 1/2 hour trip to get from Northbound to the motel and was told "Oh its the road construction. It's been like that for four years and they say there are two more before it is done!"
The people were nice, the hotel was nice, the breakfast was standard but take your GPS if you want to get there!!
