Free access to Gold's Gym right across the road Indoor pool looked nice, although we did not take advantage. Cons: Rooms (mainly bathrooms) could use some updating Fitness room was a joke.

I've been here for 3 days and have only gotten a 25 percent off coupon for the very sub standard breakfast. I still have not had a maid enter my room and the rooms are very noisy. The shuttle will take you anywhere within a five-mile radius which is nice but sometimes you have to wait an hour to get...

Stayed here for the weekend with my Mom. Not bad for the price. The good: Clean, convenient, very friendly staff, price is right. The Bad: Difficult to get to the property coming off I-64. You have to do a U-turn and immediately turn from the far right lane. This is almost impossible during high volume traffic. The walls are very...

I took the family to visit relatives and we stayed here. It was a great deal for a nice room. The hotel was clean and the room was a good size with a large window. We have a very hard time getting in and out of the hotel parking lot because it's located on a very busy street. There is...

This place was OK, we had a room with two beds and when I sat down on the corner of one I almost landed on the floor. Something in the frame was broken and while it didn't affect our sleep it certainly made the bed unusable as a seat or place to pack your suitcase. We never made it to...
