Have stayed at this hotel numerous times on our way to/from Florida & Virginia as it is pet friendly but this is our last visit. We have witnessed the cleanliness of the hotel go continuously downhill. The carpets in the hallway are disgusting. They have so many stains I don't think they've ever been cleaned. Likewise, the elevators have fingerprints...

We stayed one night. The front desk service was good. They put us in a handicapped room which was huge. No problem with that. The room had a flat screen TV and the bed was nice. We paid 94 dollars a night AAA weekday rate, which I thought was a little pricy for a weekday. Good for an overnight stay.

They were "doing renovations" which didn't bother us as we just wanted a clean place to sleep which is exactly what we got. Breakfast at the restaurant was fine nothing to rave about but it wasn't bad. Staff was...

Liked that it is Pet Friendly however the room and/or furniture needs updating. Seemed clean enough though and very reasonable rates and pet fees. Staff was very friendly. We did not use the pool or any other amenities as we were traveling for 8 hours from FL and very tired.

We stayed at this property driving home from Florida. The staff is very friendly, but the property is under renovation and needs it.
