The problems with the internet connection kept this motel from being rated higher.
The motel is clean. Our room appeared to be freshly painted. The lighting in the room was very good - bright without being harsh.
The price we paid was very reasonable.
Nice indoor pool and hot tub. Exercise room had 3 aerobic machines.
The breakfast was minimal - 2 kinds of cold cereal, 2 kinds of juice, bananas were the only fruit, a few pastries and bread and of course the ubiquitous waffle makers. Generally the breakfast area was not attended. We had to go to the front desk to ask for milk, coffee, and cereal on different mornings.
The staff was very responsive. We had asked for a room in a quiet area. Initially they put us in a room right next to the pool and the ice machine which doesn't meet our definition of a quiet area. They quickly assigned us a room on the outside away from the pool.
We noticed that one of the ice machines was producing ice which had black flakes in it. When I brought this to the manager,s attention, he was very apologetic and immediately called for his maintenance man to investigate.
However the free internet service was horrible. Although the signal strength was good, the connection would be dropped about every 5 minutes and service was extermely slow. The manager had no explanation and said that they had recently had their service upgraded. Next time I will take my chances at another motel because I like to use my laptop for email and data searches.
