New, clean and fancy.

Pros: Clean, Fancy, friendly staff. Swimming pool and Gym are very convenient. I loved the delicious apples by the front desk.

Comfortable and convenient near youth competition

Pros: Staff was very friendly; entire place was clean and tidy; it felt completely safe; room temp and layout was fine.
Cons: The highway at the back of the hotel is loud and the windows didn't do much to dampen the sound. Also, the room was slightly small -- a bit narrow.
Location: We were in the area to attend a competition and chose the closest and least expensive reputable hotel with a pool. That's all I know.
We -- two adults; two children -- stayed one night in order to be near a competition with an early start. We arrived early evening and had very friendly staff, perfectly adequate lobby, hall, elevator, room; a pleasant pool experience including whirlpool/hot tub; we drove to nearby dinner and back without difficulty, slept well enough, drove one adult and one child to the competition and returned for another swim with the other child before checking out.

Great Place

Cons: expensive breakfast, no wifi in the rooms
I had a real nice room, but think that the hotel should suppy free wifi in the rooms. You can go to McDonalds or Starbucks and connect for free, in this day and age wifi should be part of the package. I was also dissappointed that there wasn't a breakfast included in the rate, although the cafe served a nice breakfast it was on the pricey side, it ran about $20 per person for a bagel, coffee and juice. They staff were friendly and nice, would and will stay there again.
