Driving up to this hotel, I had a sinking feeling. The curb appeal is non-existent and the best thing about the outside on first glance was the free parking. The doors open directly to the outside which is not something I'm generally fond of in a motel. However, I was pleasantly surprised by a couple of things. One, the room decor was very nice, and really was surprisingly beautiful considering the hotel's modest exterior. Beds were very firm (I personally like them softer) and pillows nice. Sheets a little scratchy but not awful. Bathroom was spacious and very clean. The room was a touch noisy, but there was a white noise maker to cancel road noise.
The cleaning staff seemed great. Front desk staff was touch and go. The first night there, we had a wonderful guy at the front desk. I can't remember his name but he's a Coast Guard veteran. He went out of his way to make sure our stay was excellent. The concierge was a remarkably knowledgeable, lovely, and hilarious, woman. Some of the other front desk staff were not particularly great, but certainly adequate.
I didn't get in the pool but it looked pretty nice. Lastly, the buffet breakfast staff was really sweet, but the food was nothing special. Thank goodness they had hardboiled eggs because that was like the only protein offering they had. All in all, a decent place for a cheap rate in a wonderful location. And they allow dogs (not cats though, which is very lame). On the whole, it was a pretty good experience.
