Pros: Location to our destination and the places we wanted to visit was perfect. We liked the ease of registration . The rooms were clean and ready when we arrived , older but upgraded sufficiently. I had trouble with the bedside lamps and got an immediate fix.
Cons: Breakfast was not great but the value and location of the hotel more than made up for the weak coffee and lack of a hot breakfast menu. Getting onto the right road with no left turns was tricky . The staff gave us great directions.

Pros:
Cons: Was not happy at all. I traveled with my 91 year old mother and requested a room either on the first floor or near an elevator. Upon check in was told we were on second floor a few rooms from the elevator which would have been fine. However our room was at the complete opposite end of the hallway from the elevator. I also traveled with a small dog , which I mentioned on the reservation, and was told upon check in that it would be $50 per night for the dog. No where on any site I looked at was this mentioned. I did read there was an additional fee for a dog but not how much. I have traveled extensively with my pup in Bew Jersey New York and Pennsylvania and have NEVER paid more than $15 a night in additional. cost.. Also, although it was nice to have breakfast included, the breakfast area was small and cramped with out enough counter space or area to walk when people were sitting at the tables making it very difficult for anyone using any kind of mobility device to get around..

Pros: We had adjoining rooms with our family. Housekeeping staff were accommodating in that they did a great job in making up our room.
Cons: Pool always closed early. Pillows on the beds had very little filling in them. Linens were very worn.

Pros: The breakfast they offered was. It good. Unless you like waffles. Cause that's about all they have to offer
Cons: The hotel staff and restaurant staff were very dismissive and treated me like a teenager. I will never go back there because of this. And the pictures you have on website are not what you get in your room lol. They need updated

Pros: Clean place that takes pets. Nice place. Very busy at times. Clean safe room. Good beds. Coffee pot and refrigerator in room. Free newspaper. Huge Tv.
Cons: I just wish the parking along Hooper Avenue wasn't right alongside busy and speedy Hooper Avenue. Wish there was some sort of barrier. Noisy people 4AM in hallway one night. Crazy or drunk?
