“Another good Choice choice”
Reviewed 13 November 2013

We stayed here the night before leaving for home after a 10 day trip. I prefer Choice hotels when possible, as standards are high, prices reasonable, and they are usually very accomodating. The description of this one a little misleading as it is NOT at the airport. It was a very few minutes from there, so was not a problem.

They came and picked us up at our rental car return, and were ready to take us for our very early flight. Our room was very clean and comfortable, and very accomodating staff.

I have stayed at this property several times and never have been disappointed. I enjoy not leaving the hotel and sitting, chatting with Shawn the bartender while having a bite to eat. Very comfortable and clean rooms. Might be a little pricey in peak season.

This hotel is dated and that "older hotel smell" hits you the second you walk in the door. The elevator door squeaks the whole time it moves like it's right out of a horror movie. That said, I paid $75 for the night and it was clean, quiet, and the staff were friendly. It's also conveniently located right beside the off ramp of Exit 5a.

I would not pay more than $100 a night to stay here, and I don't know how it keeps it's 3 star rating, but I would stay there again for the price I paid.

very friendly all around, from front desk to housekeeper, I had left my car keys which they promptly mailed to me. Clean, and they upgraded us to a larger room for free. Very close to a lot of good restaurants as well.

This location is right off the 295 highway. Easy access to the motel. Dan front desk clerk was multitasking his duty pleasing all customers in a short time frame. He referred me to great sandwich shop across the street.Breakfast is a buffet but its not complementary. Still a great place to stay. Will return.

The property was clean and comfortable. The service was excellent. The bed was not the most comfortable but I confess I like harder beds They even gave us a pretty postcard when we checked in. The breakfast was wonderful. They had an omelet/waffle bar.
