Stayed a Friday night. Had a quiet room. No issues. Yes, the rooms are a little small but we were fine (3 adults). Clean room. Clean bathroom. Fridge in room. Sufficient towels. No pool. Small area for breakfast, but again it worked okay for us. If you were here with a sports team navigating breakfast would be difficult. Waffle maker,... More

The facility was very clean. They have an excellent continental breakfast with staff assistance. Pleasant and helpful staff. Front desk staff were pleasant and very informative. We stayed several days at the hotel and it was a relaxed facility. The information and ratings of this hotel was very helpful on the internet when you are travelling from a distance.

Actually the rooms are fine, noise levels are low, service was adequate, internet is functional and location is just off the highway BUT - breakfast was poor to bad.

Based on the amenities, or rather lack thereof, Choice Hotels really should have franchised this hotel as a Rodeway or one of their other down-market chains. It lacked an elevator, a fitness center or pool, and a guest laundry. It did feature a hot breakfast, but even there, they don't provide a full buffet. Rather, eggs and meat are provided... More

It's a good clean place to stay and they have reasonable prices. Comfy beds and good showers. I like the fact that there is a "back" door and you can park right in front of your room. Front desk was very nice and helpful. It's not walking distance to downtown but close to places to eat.

OK stay, This is the typical Comfort Inn. Average free breakfast. Average room. Cleanliness was good, beds were good. But this is what Comfort Inns are known for, and we have come to expect this from them. The stay was fine, but nothing out of the ordinary. We would stay here again.

I stayed here for a quick over night stay back in March. The property is actually really nice and looks to be recently updated. The rooms were clean and the hotel itself was very quiet.
