This was a fine place to stop for a night after a long drive. The hotel was plain with no frills, and simple, clean and easy to access. The kitchen worked well. One of my ongoing issues with Candlewood Suites continued here -- there are only enough dishes and silverware for two servings, so if you need to use bowls for salad for dinner you need to wash them to use for breakfast. Of course, that's easy enough to do, but this is the only suite hotel brand where we find that necessary. At others, there are at least four of each, so when we load the dishwasher in the morning before we check out, all the dishes can be washed at once. This hotel is fine for a quick stop with no frills.

The staff was friendly and the room was clean and comfortable. We only stayed one night due to an early baseball game so we didn't need much. No pool or free breakfast. Overall this hotel was nice, parking was easy, location was good.
