This hotel it more of an apartment and had great breakfast, cook to order. We stayed in a loft style room, it was 2 floors, had a kitchenette and a small living room with fireplace. I would definitely stay here again instead of the Hyatt (we normally stay there). Staff (Kat) was very friendly and knowledgeable. They even have free washers and dryers if needed. Location is right off the highway and was easily accessible. Area was quiet and did not come across any disturbances. I felt safe. The only bad thing I can say is that our room had a smell of a spice...maybe...curry. I do have a sensitive nose... so not sure if I am over reacting. But besides that, everything was better than I expected.

The hotel is pretty decent for the price. The rooms are a little small, but very comfortable. Would be a great place for one person to stay for a week or so if they were traveling for work. The rooms have full kitchens, and cookware and dishes are available upon request. The PTAC units are pretty noisy, but they do work well. The TV's are small, but each room has a DVD player already hooked up and available for use. The rooms also have a fireplace in them for use.
The breakfast is amazing. Eggs or omelettes made to order with a full list of meats and vegetables available. They also cook pancakes, french toast or waffles as you order them. That in addition to the traditional breakfast buffet items that are available (bacon, sausage, scrambled eggs, delicious biscuits and gravy, toast, muffins, etc...)
The hotel also offers a shuttle service to Old Town, which is a huge amenity to offer.
Overall, a great place.
