Typically stay at Hampton Inn or Holiday Inn Express, but out of town guests selected this location for proximity to company facility. Apparently previous guests have complained about noise as there were 2 pair of ear plugs on the nightstand with a note explaining that the proximity to the interstate was a "blessing," but these were there just in case. I didn't notice the noise, actually.
Room was adequate and clean, it was equipped with a pair of full size beds. Somewhat surprising as I have been in queen or king beds the past two years of travel at Hilton and Holiday Inn's. The bed was soft and seemed to be missing something like springs. Laid down and felt like I was sinking to the floor. Bathroom had several hairs on the floor tucked into the corners.
The biggest issue I had was with the workout room. I scouted it out and thought maybe i had missed it as i was 2 rooms from the end of the hall and the exit but there it was. The room was about half as wide as a standard hotel room with a treadmill, exercise bike, exercise ball and dumbbell sitting there. It was more than enough, but so was the smell. Not sure if there was a gallon of post-workout milk that was left open somewhere in the room, but it was overwhelming. Needless to say, i skipped the workout that night.
There are many other choices in the area, including 2 other Marriott properties in the same parking lot. I won't be coming back and probably won't be trying my luck at others since I know and am more than happy with those options.
