The hotel is currently under construction so I will give them a break on cleanliness. We arrived at the hotel at 5PM. We were told our room was not cleaned and to go out for dinner or whatever we would like. Staff was not friendly when we checked in. The morning staff was better. We had somewhere to be at 6:30 and I needed to get ready but didn't have a room. I understand the city was VERY busy but then they should have been prepared and staffed for the 100% booked hotel. We drove 3.5 hours and just wanted to relax and get ready for the night.

Staff were friendly, breakfast was good. The rooms were average, but did us just fine for a one night stay. Pool was warm which was nice, but pretty small which was difficult with the softball team of 15 kids all trying to swim at the same time while we were there.

It was a wonderful stay! The staff took an interest in why we were there and engaged us in a discussion about our interests. The rooms were clean, stocked, and had plenty of space. As you check in (and throughout your stay if you ask) they give you a warm cookie. The only thing about the location is that you can hear the airplanes as the arrived and departed the airport next door. It did not disturb us when we were asleep; only when we were awake could we tell.

We had to stay an extra day due to a snow storm. The staff were caring and informed so they could help us decide when it was safe to leave.
Food was great and large variety. The only negative is the dining area is not restaurant but I'm a hallway.
This motel allows you to stay and park you car for a trip. Great perk!!!
