Driving up to this hotel location, it was evident from the exterior that it was an older hotel property, which always raises a possible red flag. However, the interior of the hotel - public areas and guest rooms - are modern and updated. The bathroom is a bit difficult to manuver, since the door, when open, reaches just to the toilet. Traveling alone, I didn't need to close the door, but that would be an issue if I hadn't been the only person occupying the room.
Having been traveling all week, I'd promised myself room service for dinner and a long, relaxing bath. The restaurant food was very delicious and priced as you would expect for a hotel restaurant. It was plentiful and well presented on the tray. My bath could have been better though. After sinking into the water, I could feel the soap scum against my back and the tub drained a little slowly.
The bed was comfortable and I could actually tell the difference between the pillows marked "firm" and those marked "soft". The vanity area in the bathroom was spacious and perfect for getting ready the next morning.
I didn't realize that the hotel was pet friendly, but the room next door to mine was occupied by a traveler with a dog, who barked every time there was movement - including mine - in the hallway. Fortunately, the wall between the rooms was sound-proofed enough that the barking didn't waken me once I was asleep.
The most memorable experience was check-in and the 3 ladies at the front desk were bubbly and friendly.
