Our trip to Danville was not for the best reasons. We were visiting a client's wife who was admitted to the trauma center at Geisinger Hospital.
The hotel is quite cute and it fits into the small town atmosphere of Danville. I did not have the time to make reservations, but it was no issue. We got a room for $99/night. The room was very small and would have been too small for any longer than a couple of days. The room was set up similar to an old Travelodge where the toilet and bathtub were in a separate room, but the sink and storage area were in the main room. The best thing about the room was the TV. it was a very nice, new flatscreen with many channels on it.
Dinner at the hotel was very good. The food was fairly priced. I had a hangar steak with one of their optional sauces on it. It was barbeque based, but I cannot remember what they called it. it and the sides were really good.
Breakfast wasn't as good as dinner. I had the seafood omlette. The style of the omlette was like one you would get at Perkins. Folded eggs that ended up being rubbery and dry. Now, my wife ordered the pancakes. Those were very good.
The only issue I had at the hotel was at breakfast. We asked to be seated outside. We were the only ones outside, and were wondering if it would be easier for the waitstaff to wait on us at one of the inside tables. We asked the floor manager and he gruffly replied. "You will be waited on outside or you will have to go to end of the line to get a table." We were just trying to make it easier on them. There were plenty of table inside, so that wasn't a problem. We went back outside and had the poor lady running to us unnecessarily. It wasn't a problem for us, but I could imagine the treatment you would get if there was a problem.
Checkout at this hotel was at 11:00am instead of the normal 12:00pm. This was inconvient because of the reason that we were there. they should consider moving it to noon, especially since the hotel is now owned by the hospital.
