I stayed at this hotel for one night on July 4. The hotel had just opened 3 days earlier -- earlier than they intended to open, but there was such a demand for hotel rooms in the area that they decided to open before their scheduled date.
Overall, I'd say it was a nice hotel. The lobby area isn't too inviting, but the rooms are very nice -- comparable to a Courtyard hotel. The room was spacious, had a nice work area, a comfortable chair and ottoman. Bathroom had granite countertop. Bed was firm and comfortable. Lots of TV channels, along with a microwave and a fridge in the room. Very clean (to be expected when the hotel's only been open 3 days).
Although the hotel will eventually have some kind of computer available for the guests, they didn't when I stayed there. However, the manager used his computer to print out my boarding pass for my flight the next day.
The desk staff was friendly, but inexperienced. They were very up-front about the fact that they had just opened, probably a few weeks earlier than their originally scheduled date. Only 2 of the 4 floors were open for guests, the other 2 floors were still works in progress. The pool wasn't heated up yet, so they said I probably wouldn't want to use it. They had a tough time with the computer system, so check-in took a bit of time, and they never managed to get my Choice Rewards number entered into the system, though they said they would.
The rate they first quoted was comparable for the area for July 4 ($189), but just by asking, they brought the price down to $159, and eventually to $139.
The outside of the hotel is definitely not done -- no landscaping is in yet, and the parking lot looks dirty.
The hotel is in the middle of nowhere. At the same exit, there's a La Quinta, a Fairfield, the "world's largest indoor water park", a gas station, McDonalds and Arby's. If you want something more substantial to eat, you need to get in your car.
Overall, I was pleasantly surprised, and had a very nice stay.
