Hotel is very nice. Seems to have been recently remodeled. The room seemed to have a combination musty/fresh paint odor. A little annoying, but not a deal killer.[Less]
We booked our room ahead of time and everything
was ready and waiting when we arrived[Less]
The lady taking care of breakfast was able to make the food more tasty than any of the other HIE that I have stayed at, she just didn't heat the food up.[Less]

The key to my hotel room was not program and the housekeeper noticed that I could not get in my room, so she opened the door for me. Then she informed the front counter employee about the situation.[More] The front counter clerk programed my room key.[Less]
Useful kitchen suite.
The room had kitchen suite and bed all in one room but it worked perfectly for our needs (husband and I. We broke down in motor home on I-10 with a refrigerator full of food. The full size[More] refrigerator saved us having to throw food out. There was a nice desk and chair. And a comfortable recliner. Bed was good. The kitchen was well equipped for whatever we wanted to prepare.. We did not use the lending cabinet but I thought that was a unique idea. For example, we could have borrowed a blender. We could have also borrowed from a DVD library as there was a DVD player in the room.
It seemed like this hotel and others in the area cater to temporary contract workers in the area.[Less]
