It was difficult to locate driveway in but the locaztion is right off the interstate. I requested an ADA room and said I needed a bed no higher than 21-24 inches when the reservation was made. 99% of wheelchair seats are 18 inches from the floor, with a cushion they are 20-22 inches from the floor. The bed in this hotel is 28 inches. It is extremely difficult to lift your butt 6 to 8 inches and then move it sideways on to the bed. Travel websites and blogs for the disabled are filled with comments from persons in wheelchairs who are reluctant to travel because the ADA rooms are not accessible. Further, bed height is a statement by the hotel that they don't care that the room is inaccessible. A low-profile box spring that would lower the mattress to 22 inches is the simplest solution. Bed height also affects your ability to use a roll-in shower; since you remove the cushion from the wheelchair before getting into the chair from the shower. This makes the lift to the bed 10 inches which is well beyond anyone's capability.
Additionally, the closing mechanism on the room door needs to be adjusted for use by a person in a wheelchair. If your maintenance staff does not know how there are several online do-it-yourself videos.
The staff from the day of making reservations to check out was outstanding, very friendly, and accommodating. An excellent place to stay very clean and location great. The food area and service was very good and food delicious. Will stay again.
