Upon arrival we were able to get a standard room. While checking in another potential guest called the front desk and was told the same thing, but then people...

This was a planned stop while traveling from Florida to Philadelphia and it worked out very well. Arriving early we were graciously allowed into our room early. The staff was pleasant and accommodating. Our room with two queen beds was comfortable and offered a good nights sleep. We found the free breakfast to be very good.

stayed one night on way to NY. Nice, clean and surprisingly quiet. I wasn't sure it would be when I saw several construction workers waling in with suitcase of beer! Staff was very friendly as was the lady in the breakfast room. Bed was very comfortable as was the room. Clean too. Very small pool only 4ft deep. Nice breakfast...

The staff at the desk were very friendly and helpful, the room was very clean, upscale, and very comfortable for a one-night stay during an I-95 road trip. And the breakfast the next morning was ready an hour ahead of the scheduled time and whomever made the sausage gravy and biscuits should be given a medal because they were outstanding.

This hotel was easy to get to off of I-95. It was clean, and quiet, even though we were near the elevator. The pool was clean, and just right for kids to cool off after a long ride in the car. It seemed that the night desk was a little short staffed, but VERY friendly. I would stay here again...
