Had two rooms for a couple weeks in October. Front desk staff seemed put out to check us in. Rooms were pretty outdated based on other HIE's I've stayed at throughout the US.

The hotel has a good location to the interstate. Breakfast was very good and fresh, thanks to Dee for that. The afternoon/evening receptions were enjoyable and usually enough food to pass for a dinner, albeit a light one. My only semi-issue was the speed of the Internet. I work a lot in the evenings and the speed rarely approaches 3mb.... More
