This hotel is not new and has been around for at least 10 years but it has been extensively remodeled and might as well be new! I was pleasantly surprised. I stayed here back then, almost the first day it opened and when we entered the room that day, the drapes had yet to be hung up....they came and hung them up:)
Well, those drapes are now gone and the window treatments are beautiful. It is a welcoming place...the staff is friendly and the rooms are kept very clean by the housekeeping staff. I just didn't care for the idea of an envelope being left to tip the housekeeping staff.....maybe it is okay...and I did put a few dollars in.
The breakfast is good but the area where you eat the breakfast is quite small and as it was a busy weekend in GF it was very crowded. so we ate it in our room. They have a pancake maker that makes pancaked really fast. Quite the hit!
The pool area is quite small....crowded as well but the water is warm. It would be okay on a different weekend perhaps. This hotel has a great location. You can walk to a lot of the shopping and it shares a parking lot with IHOP and the wonderful Ruby Tuesdays. It is super easy to find as it is right off the interstate, at exit 138.....no getting lost! I loved all the upgrades to this property and no scaffolding was visable on the 10th of November and the hotel looked beautiful and inviting in the dark with its blue glowing lights.
