My name is Tammy, and i am a team driver with my husand. Let me start off by saying that John at the front desk was very nice guy--just a bit uninformed. When I called in to find out information, he advised me that there was a lot behind Dairy Queen where truck drivers park. He also advised that they were sold out of the king rooms that I had asked about, but had king rooms with jacuzzis in them. I asked what the price was on those and he stated $89.00. I then asked if they offered a CDL discount and he said he could give us AAA discount. Thinking that the discount would be less than the $89.00 I thought that was a great deal, plus they had truck parking--we never find that kind of deal! I went against my own policy and made a reservation--you see, we have been told before that a hotel has truck parking, only to get there and find that they do not...making a reservation in such an instance could cause us to be charged anyway.
When we drove up to the hotel, we soon realized that they did not have an empty lot behind Dairy Queen, nor anywhere else around. My husband had to park in the street with the flashers on while I ran in to find out where this lot for trucks was. John said he found out from the owner that there actually is no lot, and that we could either park on the street ( which is against our companies policy, and could cause us to be terminated!), or in the parking lot of the storage building next door, which belonged to the hotel owner. We opted to weasel and squeeze our way in to the storage area. Problem solved. My husband checked us in, and was told of the breakfast bar in the morning, and we were wished a good night. When we got in to the room ( which, by the way, turned out to be $107.00 after tax--guess the AAA rate IS the $89.00?) things seemed fine. We went and retrieved our dinner at the Dairy Queen--when we returned, the entry light/vanity/sink light didn't come on. Since it was late and we had just brought our dinner back to our room, we decided to deal with it.
The bed was comfy, the jacuzzi worked great, and we settled in for a good night's sleep. That didn't happen for me--I don't know if it was hotel guests, or employees, but we were right by the side door which led outdoor--someone went in and out every couple of hours or so and letting the door slam--this happened until we had to get up at 6am. We started to get ready, and had to start doing so without the vanity light for a while, although it finally came on. We then went down to the "breakfast bar" which sounded magical the night before, but turned out to be a continental breakast. While eating, we overheard another guest complaining about an experience she had.
The place was nice, but for our experience, I wouldn't say it was $107.00 worth. We have paid that price for a bed and breakfast (not in the truck, of course) with an extravagant breakfast and fancy accommodations so comparatively--not comparable. By the way, we have also paid less than that amount for an older hotel with adequate accommodation, and as long as it was clean and had actual truck parking, we were fine with it. Again, decent place, but because of our overall experience, I don't know that we would stay there again.
