Was looking to be close to the airport, as I was NOT renting a car on this trip.
Called and the very charming and thorough Debbie ( formerly of Michigan) gave me details upon details of the offerings
free 24 hour shuttle
free beverages and fresh popcorn from 3-9pm nightly
free wine/beer nightly from 5:30-7pm + nachos, chips and pretzels
( huge cost savings for our group of 12)
So we booked it and got a very competitive rate compared to 10 miles away where rates were 46% higher
We arrived and the place exceeded our expectations
The spiffy and very neat outdoor presentation will give you a hint of the inside
The lobby will blow your average chain away with colors, textures and downright welcoming !
Michael was our first point of contact when we arrived, we thought since it was before noon , we would store our luggage, he would not hear of it , he had a room ready!!
A room ready at noon( not always an industry norm, but we seized it )
He then gave us our keys and hospitality tickets for all three nights
Asked if we needed anything at all, and greeted me by name multiple times
The elevator is 2 lefts and one right away, which eventually makes sense since the front portion on the building is one to one and a half stores
And the lodging is a 4 story back building
Our room was cozy, plush and very quiet
Never ever heard a voice in the hallway or a door slam, not even ambient road noise or any airplane noise
( the airport is .5 away )
Another bonus is the sink/wash basin is separate from the tub and commode , so 2 people can get prepped at once.
One nice touch was the TV mounted about 2 foot above the dresser making laying in bed an easy spot for late night viewing.
A luxurious outdoor pool , with more towels than I have ever seen on a cart
( AT LEAST 40 TOWELS AT THE READY !)
The daily snack hours from 3pm -pm featuring fresh popped popcorn and 5 soda selections is a nice treat and $$ saver
The nightly hospitality hours from 5:30 - 7pm offers beer and 4 wine choices, 3 per adult, no charge
Plus chips, nachos and pretzels
The breakfast buffet was set out on time at 6 am every day and Chef Myrna offered , fluffy scrambled eggs, sausage patties, taters, ham, cheese biscuits and gravy
The shuttle saved us from renting a car, it ran 24 hours a day and wait times were less than 6 minutes
The shuttle will also take you in a 1 mile radius for restaurants and stores, which includes the Wahlburger and Walmart.
EXCELLENT STAFF ,!!
The hotel is nice. Beautiful decoration. The rooms are big enough and very comfortable beds. The bathrooms are small (you can't close the door unless you stand in the little space between the toilet and the shower). Showers are super low. I'm tall and had to kneel to wash my hair and face. The snacks and beverages in the afternoon are very nice. My daughter loved the popcorn! When we arrived we were told that the airport shuttle will pick us up in 10 minutes, but waited more than 50. For our departure we had to take the first airport shuttle at 4:00 am, but again, it wasn't on time. We had to take a taxi. The hotel paid for it though.
