Friendly staff, continental breakfast. Good price. Not a fancy hotel but the room and hotel were clean. Decent mattress on the beds

Not that I didn’t like it but maybe rotate the continental breakfast option. Have eggs for instance some days instead of biscuits and gravy. Food was totally fine though. A towel hook in bathroom would be good

The room had been updated and was very nice. First comfy hotel bed I've slept in, in awhile. The shower spray was amazing. The staff was very friendly, especially since it was an unexpected trip for me and late at night.

No portable fans for use. I sleep with a fan at night for white noise and the cool air blowing on me. But it turned out their wall unit had a fan that ran the whole night and blew right at the bed. They also didn't have coffee makers in the room. I had to go down to the common area to get coffee.

One of the cleanest and kept places that i had been to for the price range. Great job.

Breakfast was provided and that is more than I can say for most places. Selection choices could have been a little broader. Parking was a little tight for trucks.

Pet friendly rooms. We did have an issue with toilet not flushing when we got in our room but they changed our room immediately. Friendly and courteous staff. Easy access to highway and food options.

Clean but worn.
