We from the UK and in the second week of a 5 month tour of the USA. Because we are here for so long we are looking for budget hotels, booking them as we go. We are already starting to get a feel for what we like and we look for free parking and WiFi wherever we stay.
This has been the best so far. The hotel was about 1 minute off the highway so it was very easy to find. The hotel is clean throughout; rooms, surrounding area, lobby ect. The staff were very friendly and helpful and made us feel welcome. The rooms are basic, but have a fridge, coffee machine and microwave. We bought a kettle out here and make our drinks though, highly recommended if you're here for a while! The hotel has a pool and jacuzzi, both of which were very warm. There is also a small gym with modern running machines and a cross trainer, which I found pretty impressive for the cost of the room. We also used the laundry facilities here $1.50 to wash and $1 to dry, good value.
The breakfast is included and was the best selection we've had so far, toast, bagels, porridge, grits, sausage, egg, bacon, danish pastries and fresh fruit.
There are quite a few fast food places near the hotel, but you will need to drive if you want something more sophisticated. Downtown is about 25 minutes drive away, so again you will need to drive if you want to go there.
I would happily recommend this hotel. less
