After a 5-hour treacherous drive (rain, low visibility), it was especially nice to be greeted by the genuinely friendly clerk and to see the nice, clean lobby. My room was big and clean. It had a little refrigerator and a microwave. But the best site to behold was an ashtray! When I booked, I told was told (online) that it was a smoking room, but I found it hard to believe. I travel a lot, and smoking is not permitted anywhere. I resent this. I mean, I'm paying so much money for my comfort, and I can't do something that brings me comfort? There was even a book of matches in the ashtray. I felt like I was in an old movie. I'm glad at least one hotel out there still believes in the freedom of choice. I slept great in my comfy bed, and all the staff members were so friendly. One example was the woman in charge of the breakfast buffet. I clumsily spilled scrambled eggs all over the counter, and she was right there to clean it. I felt so bad. She smiled and said -- it's okay. Her biggest concern was whether or not there were any eggs left for me to eat. She checked. Eggs low! So she hurried into the kitchen to replenish the eggs. The breakfast wasn't exactly the Four Seasons, but it was just fine for me. They had scrambled eggs, sausages, oatmeal, waffles, assorted pastries, toast, and fruit. Pretty good coffee, too. I easily found this hotel. It's not even one minute off a main highway (27). Don't waste your money on expensive hotels when you can stay at this wonderful hotel!
Can't beat the price! My suite (kitchen, not kitchenette, living room, bedroom & full bath) for under $150 a night was more than I expected. The staff was very helpful with aiding us with area attractions. As a smoker (yes, I need to quit), I had to stand outside uncovered in the wet snow. Other than that a perfect stay.
We stayed here just to be close to our daughter's wedding site, and have a place to change in the morning. We were pleasantly surprised with the cleanliness of the room and the overall appearance of the hotel. The amenities available are hard to find in some hotels at twice the price, such as a full-size ironing board, mini-fridge, free wireless (in the lobby, but our room was right off the lobby, so it was full strength), free HBO, etc. I would not hesitate to return for a similar stay - was perfect for our needs.
