My buddy and I are big into trains, and because we had run out of daylight, decided to do an overnight here since the location was perfect for the next day's activities. The hotel is very new and the staff was friendly and accomodating. We were given a top-floor room facing the railroad, which for us was great, although the train activity turned out to be too much of a good thing, even for us. So for those who are 'normal', it would be best to specifiy a room facing the back, away from the highway and train noise.
The room cleanliness and comfort were both excellent. Complementary breakfast was the usual high standard for HIX's; public areas were clean and attractive.
Although certainly not exculsive to this property, our one complaint was the lack of a CONSTANT fan-only setting on the room's air unit. Such a setting provides a good source of even, ambient sound which goes a long way to cancel out noise disturbance. Otherwise, keeping the fan running meant setting a temperature that was too hot/cold to keep the room comfortable.
An overall good stay; I would return again.
