This was undoubtedly a top hotel in the late 80's. It has an in-house restaurant, opulent lobby, upscale room furninshings, multiple conference centers, etc. Unfortunately, as the years passed, it became choked off from interstate access (you can only get here by exiting a half-mile north and driving south along the service road). Due to this accessibility problem, they get no drop-in customers and have therefore suffered a dramatic decrease in profitability. Management is obviously attempting to keep the place open by making cuts....and this is beginning to show up with maintenance issues. The parking lot could use a new coat of sealer and hedges need trimming and mulching. Once inside you'll see that a new coating of paint is needed here and there, and most obviously, new carpet is severely needed in the hallway to the rooms.
In their defense, the employees are very friendly. Once I made it to my room, I was actually surprised...the rooms are pretty nice; you can tell this was once a great place to stay.....and I slept well on a really good mattress. None of the imperfections that I noted were found in my room-but in the common areas. I believe the management is making every attempt to provide a good room.
The $49 cost for a non-smoking double is about half what I normally pay for a room. I would NOT advise that you bring someone here whom you are trying to impress, but if you're merely looking for a good price on a place to grab a few winks while traveling, it's a pretty good deal. Just remember to leave I55 on the exit to the north and approach on the access road.....There's just no way to get there from the south; I tried!
