Made reservations at the last minute and arrived very late at night. Easy check-in, great room both us and our dog. The cafeteria breakfast was an especially nice change from the usual motel breakfast options.

Correct. The restaurant proper is only open for breakfast but the lounge has some bar snacks, like burgers and quesdillas.

"Ask for first floor if you have stair trouble or large luggage"
"Pick another hotel."
"Ask for a room as far away from Speedway and Stone as possible"
"Lower floor if you don't want to carry luggage, kids up and down stairs every day."
"In general all the rooms are quiet, in the back even a little more. Hotel is not on a busy highway."
