Kind of odd odor to entire place but fairly clean. Guest washing machine and hot rob out of order.
Parking a pickup and trailer not good need more parking room.
Comfortable bed.Room (other than the train a couple of nights-see under negatives) was very quiet at night (I also ran the AC/Heater fan on continuous for some white noise to mask any random sounds). Relatives who were at the Hampton Inn down the block said the walls there were paper thin there. Neighbors in the next room complained when they were talking in conversational level voices. Downstairs neighbors complained every time they walked across the floor, and all this in early evening.
Negatives are that they (and all the chain motels) are located on the highway, near the train tracks. Even though I was in the farthest back room, you still hear train whistles at various times that sound like you are on the train tracks (although a couple hundred yards away). In a 5 night stay, only twice during the night while sleeping. Evenings and mornings after up aren't a bother, it's just being woken up in the middle of the night. Next negative, there were ants. They were very helpful in offering to either spray immediately (which they did, odorless), and then thoroughly clean/spray, etc. the next day. Second choice was they only had one room open (smelled of smoke, even though a non-smoking motel). Third choice, find me a room in another motel, which wasn't an option that late at night when I had to attend a memorial service the next morning. There some a couple 1/8 inch pieces of paper (confetti like) that were in the middle of the floor, that were the first three days, showing that they weren't vacuuming daily. No wonder there were ants, if someone left left crumbs from eating. Cable TV was out one evening (problem with provider) which was not their fault, but I received no discount for that. Very limited fresh fruit in the morning, even though I was there very shortly after they started serving, and there were never more than 2 to 4 people already there. No bananas the first three mornings (which I like on my oatmeal). Only yogurt choices were strawberry and blueberry. Looking online at popularity, they are in order: strawberry, vanilla, plain, and peach. While strawberry and blueberry are fine, I would have expected some variety of vanilla and peach, especially considering the national popularity. Since it was a non-smoking motel, it seemed people went and smoked right outside the back/side door entrance which was close to my room (and sitting at the picnic table you had to walk by to get to the door).
Comfortable and very clean
Could have gotten it cheaper if I would have called direct which I will be doing from now on. Couldn't get the employee discount. I paid 120 and could have gotten it for 83
The comfort, service and breakfast.
Had trouble one day connecting to WiFi.
The friendly staff and management. I would stay there again on our next visit to see our great grand children and grand children.
The toilet in our room needed to be replaced The bowl was stained a lot but clean..
The staff throughout our stay (check in-out, and breakfast staff) were friendly and helpful.
The hotel was clean, the bed comfortable and the breakfast was fabulous!
Heat too noisy, difficult to regulate
Breakfast attendant needed to attend to the food, not merely be in attendance at breakfast. Also the room details were overlooked, such as the soap from the previous guest being left in the bathroom.
