  • 10.0

    Very clean and quiet. Beds were comfy. Loved the bathroom and shower

    Couldn't find a spot to park due to the restaurant patrons. They took everyone's room spots...aggravating

  • 6.2

    Comfortable beds

    Problematic shower controls; hotel staff challenged to diagnose plumbing failures and provide replacement room in timely and customer-service-oriented fashion

  • 9.2

    The breakfast had good choices and the area was very well kept.

    Very weird to have a pool in the middle of a parking lot. Maybe invest in a garden along side of the pool so you are not looking at the trucks always parked there.

  • 8.2

    Very clean pool

    Maybe need to add towels poolside or extra in room

  • 7.8

    The double sinks were perfect! That's a first for us.

    Parking. The Mexican restaurant patrons took a lot of space.

  • 10.0

    Comfortable bed, nice water pressure in the shower, friendly, helpful staff at the desk, varied and delicious breakfast options, cleanliness, adequare parking.

    Our keys did not work well at all to open our room door. We had to push the card down and up MULTIPLE times EVERY TIME we came back to the hotel to get in by pushing on the door with all our weight then entering the room like Cramer when it finally opened! Annoying when our hands were full and we just wanted in! Of course, we could've turned them in at the desk and asked for new keys, but we didn't.

  • 8.8

    The bed felt good. The bathroom was good.

    The breakfast needs to be expanded. Cold hard boiled eggs are no treat. Hot scrambled eggs with a meat would be great. USA Today would be good to have for your guests to read.

  • 9.6

    Quiet, easy access, clean.

    Arrived for breakfast at 0830. No pancake batter available and none was being prepared. We elected to go elsewhere for our breakfast.

  • 7.8

    The staff was extremely friendly, and the continental breakfast wasn't bad. They did a good job making the beds and keeping up with fresh towels and did so with no disturbance to us.

    There was black mold on the bathroom windows, the A/C smelled like mildew and triggered my husband's asthma, and the toilet had to be flushed sometimes two or three times for everything to go down all the way.

  • 8.2

    Nice room.

    Didn't realize until after we got there, it was a hotel with the room doors leading to outside. I prefer rooms that are on the inside. Going up to the room, Elevators wasn't too clean. Smelled bad. Room could have been a little more cleaner but it was nice.

  • 8.8

    Rooms were exceptionally clean and nicely updated. Beds were comfortable.

    We liked everything about the property although exterior, while freshly painted, was a bit dated in style.

  • 5.8

    CLOSE TO TN TECH AND I40

    MAID SERVICE DID NOT MAKE BED ON FIRST MIGHT. ELEVATOR NOT WORKING

  • 9.6

    Clean, lots of sleep pillows and a comfortable bed...Cost was good for the room.

    Would like to see a warm breakfast as well as the continental breakfast. Almost every hotel today has this to offer.

  • 10.0

    The room was simple, but very comfortable. Loved the Mexican restaurant in the parking lot.
