Pros: The beds are comfortable, and the eggs and other breakfast items are good. The staff is friendly and helpful. The hotel is quiet. It's at a good location halfway between my start and end points.
Cons: Usually, I have very clean rooms at this facility, but my last stay, the 17th of August, was different. The first room was suffused with the smell of cigarette smoke. I was given an upgrade, which would have been nice, except that the room wasn't clean. There was a lot of long, black hair in the bathroom--on the tub, floor, and on the wall by the light switch there was a big swirl of black hair. It looked like it had been picked out of a drain, and somehow ended up on the wall. That was pretty disgusting. I stepped on something crunchy by the bed. It was a peanut. There were peanuts on the floor. The reception on the TV was snowy for every channel. I thought about taking photos, but I believe the hotel will make an effort to do better, or so I hope. I will give it another chance, and if it isn't better, there is a comparable place just across I-55 that I stayed at once a few years ago. And, just to add one more discomforting item--the room had mosquitos. In the time of Zika, going South, one doesn't want mosquitos. I swatted one sluggish monster on the bed, and it splatted a big splotch of blood. I didn't want to touch it, but about an hour later, I notice it had moved and was struggling to fly. I smashed it again, and killed it that time. I moved to the other side of the bed, where I could avoid the mosquito if I clung to the edge of the bed. When I pulled back the covers, there was red lint between the sheets. I thought about taking photos, but it would have ruined the place's business.
