It included one king size bedroom and a double queen bedroom. It was beyond spacious and very nice and clean. There was 1 bathroom, 2 sink...

I spent one night here traveling to North Carolina from Rhode Island. Despite being located close to a major highway my room was very quiet-I never heard a thing! I plan to stay there again and take advantage of the restaurant located in the hotel lobby.

We got our room for a great price, and thoroughly enjoyed the onsite restaurant and beautiful indoor pool. The hotel staff were super accommodating and responsive. Our room was located ground level and on the freeway side, which initially worried me from reviews I read. However, noise levels were still minimal and did not wake my 1-year old daughter. Great...
