After reading the reviews of the hotels near Wings Stadium, I was a little worried about staying here. I am originally from the area (lived about a mile from this location.) and know that most of the hotels are at least 20 years old. I was visiting for my H.S. class reunion.
I was very pleasantly surprised! This is a newer building and is well maintained. The room was clean, well aired out, the A/C had been turned on for us before our arrival, and the Cobalt Blue decor was very attractive.
I did not use the pool, but it appeared to be a nice (smaller) pool that would be fun for families. Note, the hotel's services book said the pool is only available from Memorial Day to Labor Day although it is an indoor pool, so call to verify pool availability if you are not visiting in the summer.
The breakfast room was a bit crowded during the 9 am rush, but other times was more than adequate. They had a good food lineup including two cereals, oatmeal packets, bread/bagles/English muffins/pastries, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, make your own waffles, apple and orange juice, milk, and coffee. The attendant kept things filled and clean.
The only design flaw I noticed was the textured tile floor in the lobby...it creates quite a lot of noise when you're rolling the luggage cart through it!
There is a McDonald's right next door with many other eating options very close by ranging from Subway to family dining restaurants to classier fare. Other nearby businesses include gas stations, a couple bars, an a bank or two.
I will keep this hotel on my list of places to stay in the future and is definitely a higher quality facility within walking distance of Wings Stadium.
