We stayed here for just one night as we were moving my daughter into the local college. We did arrive later than expected (9 pm), but we did call ahead to let them know. The desk clerk was very friendly,helpful and courteous. Our designated room was on the back side of the hotel,so you do have to drive around the building to park. The room size was large with two queen size beds. The pillows were disappointing as they were really small ,like throw pillows. I have slept on more comfortable beds,these seemed liked they have met their time frame for support,as they sagged towards the middle. We had a difficult time getting the water to come on in the tub/shower. Had us worried at first that it didn't work,but after several minutes of of tugging on the control knob we managed to get the water on. The morning was a disappointment as there was no breakfast available. The ad says continental breakfast, but we couldn't find any. We asked the morning clerk if they had breakfast,and she pointed is to the restaurant,which was empty,and no staff in sight.Needless to say,being on a schedule we didn't have time for a sit-down and order type breakfast. So we left and went to the local Hardees . The facility is large,and beautiful, but I expected more than I received from the appearance and ads.
