Spent a Friday night here. Both people I dealt with at the front desk were very friendly and helpful with some special requests.

We stayed 1 night on our way back home from Chicago. To tell the truth this hotel really surprised because on our way to Chicago we stayed also at a Red Roof in Medina Cleveland and it was a disaster. This location was completely different. Clean and comfortable and recently renovated.
