I was a little apprehensive at first because of the lower rates and a few bad pics on site from 2011. But the location was ideal for my needs, so I booked a King room just for one night (I was actually staying in the area for three nights but just in case…). I ended up adding the rest of the nights after my first night!
Checked in about 8pm and wanted a room on the parking lot side for convenience to my car (had some extra stuff with me to drop off next day at work and didn't want to leave in the car - even though they appear too have 24hr security - I'm a little bit cautious when it comes to any parking lot - indoor or outdoor). Was tired and hungry but they have a TGIF restaurant connected to the lobby - so I did not have to get back out in my car. The TGIF bar came in handy also. Room was very clean with fairly new furniture?and their King bed was I believe one of those "heavenly beds?" - anyway felt like one and had no problems falling asleep.
Woke up early and had to be at work by 6:30am - and their breakfast person (very nice older lady) was nice enough to give me a small to go box with a some breakfast stuff around 6:15 even though they didn't open till 6:30. Saved me a few bucks! Luckily when I got back the hotel was having some sort of monthly manager's party for the guests - free beer and food! Got to meet some staff and they all seemed to be very nice and eager to help (one even went out of the way to make sure I knew a couple of places to eat at nearby - didn't want to do TGIF for all 3 nights).
When I checked out ( a young lady named - Angie?) made sure that I was aware of their policy in allowing pets - just because I mentioned my dog being left behind. Will definitely bring "Teddy" with me next time! The only small drawback was their free workout room was next door at their sister hotel (Host Inn?) but actually making me walk a few extra feet helped me work off my dinner.
