This would be a great hotel for families. The price is half that of most other hotels in the area. Room was decent. Breakfast is good. Has an indoor pool and arcade room. Has a creek behind the hotel where you can feed the ducks with quarter machines for duck food. You are close to all of the attractions. CVS Pharmacy, Mellow Mushroom, and Marble Slab ice cream is right across the street. Over all we would stay there again for the affordable price and great location.
Parking: Not enough parking the time we were there. They were repaving the parking lot the week of Memorial Day. We could not find parking one night. Cars parked all over in non-designated areas. Motorcycles would take up an entire space with just one motorcycle in it... they should paint designated motorcycle parking areas.
Breakfast: Breakfast was good, however I do agree that the spacing/order of the breakfast items could be made more efficient for better traffic flow. The U-shaped counter makes it a bit cramped. Breakfast included scrambled eggs, sausage, waffles, tropical mixed fruit, cereal, and toast.
Rooms: It was a decent room. We did find a few ants crawling around in the bathroom both days. We did not contact the front desk about it. The room smelled a bit musty/smokey even though it was non-smoking.
Amenities: The pool looked decent in size and stays open until 11pm. The jacuzzi was ridiculously small only fitting about 3 people... even then I think it would be awkward if you didn't know the person sitting in there with you.
