I called a few days before arrival to make reservations, so check-in was fast and easy. The front desk staff was very friendly and greeted me as I came in the door. The hotel is located just off the main road [Hwy 290], about a block from the main street into downtown, and sits behind the frontage businesses, so it was very quiet. The grounds are well-maintained and clean. My room was large with a nice large work desk, comfortable reading chair & lamp, m/w, frig, a large new flat-screen TV, and a very comfortable king bed. I really liked the choice of soft or firm pillows. The room and bath were both very clean and I also liked the adjustable shower-head in the bath. Wi-Fi was fast and free. The pool seemed a little small, but looked clean and inviting. Full breakfast in a large seating area included pancakes from an automatic pancake-maker, eggs & sausage, biscuits and gravy, cereal, pastries, and fruit. There is a recommended Mexican restaurant next door and a couple of fast-food places within walking distance. A Dollar Store and gas station nearby. In all, a very nice, quiet hotel, priced reasonably for an upper-tier chain. I understand from previous reviews that the hotel is undergoing remodeling and my only disappointment was the patched but unpainted repairs in the room -a small place on the wall, larger repairs in the closet, and sloppy caulking around the sink. None of this affected the comfortable, quiet night I had, but did not appear to be up to HI Express standards.
