9,0 Excellent
Pros: Room was excellent size and clean. Corners and around edges of carpet (trim) needs a little attention Facilities were all excellent. We had a very nice stay
5,0 Okay
Pros: The room was clean
Cons: I booked online while on a weekend trip. We arrived and immediately tried to cancel the reservation that I had booked just 2 hours before, we could cancel the room for a fee, which was the exact amount of what the room rate was. Needless to say we just sucked it up and stayed. Here’s where the problem is, this hotel is owed by TMC Trucking, it’s completely surrounded by hundreds of Semi’s. This hotel has several appealing amenities but we were unable to use the arcade and game room because it was full on truckers, we didn’t use the pool or the hot tub because the thought of that was just plain gross, with dozens of strange men walking around,hanging out and walking the hallways at all hours of the day and night it didn’t give that safe feeling. We pretty much stayed locked in our room the entire time, couldn’t wait to get the hell out of there first thing in the morning.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: The rooms were clean and well organized.
Cons: The cart to move luggage was located at a different door, which did not have a ramp, so I had to walk all the way there to get it.

Pros: Breakfast was very good and fully stocked. Plenty of places to sit. The rooms are very clean and the staff is friendly. Pool and hot tub were nice.

We can certainly get by without changing sheets and we had enough towels etch was just strange that they never came in even though we were out all day. Also our window looks right into another hotel next door. We left the shades drawn most of the time.

6,5 Good
Pros: Location. Cleanliness
Cons: Booked through a third party. Had to listen to general manager scold me on using a third party. Then asked for a double queen instead of the king I booked and he was not at all accommodating. He said since I booked through a third party I would have to contact them to request the change. So I contacted third party. They said that the hotel would have to change based on their availability. Back to the GM. He literally walked away. Wouldn't discuss or help. Thankfully on of HIS employees was able to resolve. He should not be in the position he is in.

Pros: The breakfast was most excellent , outstanding fresh selections changing daily , have never scene such an abundant buffet that was complimentary at any other establishment . Would look to stay at a Stay bridge in the future just for the breakfast , also must note unlike many other hotels the hours offered for breakfast much more convenient . The price for the value was outstanding , nice to have a 24 hour pool area and the room was amazing . The staff where amazing , super accommodating , great job to all !
Cons: The room could have been cleaner, the coffee pot still had a filter in it with grounds from last patron , the shelves in kitchen area had food debris on ( loose potato chips , cereal flakes , ect. ). During our stay in mid October it was exceptionally colder than normal , maintenance had not been around to clean heating and cooling unit yet , unfortunately the dust burning off unit stunk up room and caused smoked detectors to go off. Opening to bathroom sink / closet area could use an accordion door or pull across curtain . Finally the couch in are room need replaced , center was so broke from use it was like sitting in a sinkhole .

Cons: We sprung for spa tub and it was not what i expected. Usually that means its large enough for two people. I was hoping to have a romantic time and it was comical mostly. ALSO the king bed was hard as a rock!
