I stayed there on business several times the last year. The staff, cleanliness and breakfast are all great. I mentioned they did not have my favorite, grits, last week and the next morning there they were. They even offered to make some the first day but I declined.

Fire alarm went off more than 5 times in less than a 24 hour period. No rest with constant fire alarms sounding off and strobe lights. Lights flashed for over 1 hour on the last time it went off. And btw there was no fire. Also old blood stains on sheets.

Check in was quick and easy, rooms were very clean and comfortable. Staff was friendly and very helpful. Normal breakfast, but the staff managing the breakfast was friendly, kept food re-filled and fresh, kept tables and area clean. Very quiet location. Close to restaurants and shopping. Price was right, and will definitely stay here again.

Hotel was average in quality and amenities was there. Clean room just remodled, had fridge but no microwave. Eating places was in good walking distance. Hotel staff was average and tried to be helpful but could look more professional .Internet was not as good as I needed, but I finally got what I needed completed.
