    They had cookies

    Our room could have been ready on time, the staff could have been more polite and professional, and the hot tub could have been in service... The one reason I chose this hotel over others in the area...

    Decent motel

    Nice large room with refrigerator and microwave. Beds were comfortable.

    Shower hardly drained, rather lame for a motel at this price. Lots of pillows, but no variation in thickness. Hard for those of us with neck problems. A bit noisy, dogs barking in room near us and people coming in in the middle of the night talking and laughing loudly. Useless one cup coffee machine. They have free coffee in the check in area, but I would rather have coffee and wake up in my room without having to get dressed and go out. Even though I brought my own coffee with me, the tiny one cup coffee maker was unusable as it is designed for the packets of coffee (which are terrible). Why bother?

    Great breakfast, great room

    I was probably most surprised by the extensive breakfast options. Staff was amazing. There was a cute gazebo. I used the hot tub twice.

    The room smelled heavily of air freshener. I like scent free rooms. Sometimes heavy smells like that give me a migraine. It was so intense I aired the room out for a while when I checked in.

    Decent place, nothing spectacular

    Motel was as it should be. Staff was courteous and polite.

    Breakfast was mediocre, but I'm probably looking for a healthier breakfast than I should expect to get at a chain hotel. They were doing construction on the rooms next to us, and although they didn't start at too unreasonable of a time, it was unexpected on the weekend.
