Clean and comfortable hotel


November 10, 2021

This was my first time staying at this hotel as we typically stay at a different IHG hotel in the area. I liked the slightly larger room with the kitchenette and eating area. We were only here for one night, but I can see how these items would make longer stays much more comfortable. We will keep this property in mind for future stays.

The only thing that we would improve regarding the room was the firmness of the mattress. It was too soft for our comfort and did not offer much support. I know this is personal preference, but it does play into where we choose to stay.

The other thing is that at the time of our stay the state was requiring all individuals, regardless of vaccination status, to wear masks indoors. This hotel was only requiring unvaccinated people to wear masks. This puts too much trust in people to do the right thing. The hotel was not overly crowded so this did not cause any issues, but again something we will consider for our next stay.
