We stopped here on a cross country trip. We booked through Priceline so we got about 30% lower price than the lowest rack rate. Very easy or locate off I-20. Upon arrival, were greeted by a friendly staff and given bed choice. Clean, comfortable room and bed. Good warm breakfast. Would stay again.

This is my second time at this particular hotel and each time has been clean and comfortable. This time I was even on the side facing the interstate and did not hear any road noise. The breakfast was good with a nice selection of options. I would consider staying here again.

This hotel is clean, rooms on the opposite side of the highway are quiet, lots of parking spaces, good breakfast, the pool's water is very clear, the staff is there for you for any need. There is no elevator but plenty of stairs around the hotel.

* Enjoyed hot breakfast, good number of items. They unfortunately pick up food prior to breakfast close, so make sure you don't wait until last 15-30 mins * Room has musty odor and was not vacuumed during my stay. Disappointed in cleanliness of room * Good pool

This was an awesome stay and it was a last minute stay and the customer service was unbelievable. Right off the interstate and into the bed, it was just that easy. Please consider your stay at this Name brand hotel, you won't regret it.

Stay at this hotel. Park well. Sleep well. Eat nice accommodating breakfast. It is not nice to tell me that I must report more than necessary to get the point across. I will not in the future take my time for you requirements. Take what i say or don't ask.

TA rated this 4/34 hotels; I'd hate to see the lower ranked ones! The desk clerk was uninformed & loutish. He didn't know (or care about) the difference between a pet & service animal. Though we had reserved & paid for a King room on TA, he insisted we had to have a pet room, which was 2 full sized...

Last night of vacation. Had no plans to stay in this city but it turned out fine. the hotel was clean and roomy. Complete with a couch. Plenty if pillows which we like. The price was higher than most of the hotels we stayed at on this vacation. Could recommend to others.
