    Clean, great price, comfortable

    Hotel is too close to the highway and you can hear the tire noise entire night. Their window is not sound proof. If you are a light sleeper, you need ear plugs to stay

    The pillows were horrible. We woke up everyday stiff. Also, because of COVID they did not clean everyday which I understand but you should still get new towels. I would have to request them every morning.

    Very pleasant stay at a very good rate!

    The hotel is very nice and clean and easy to get to off the interstate. I was surprised that it wasn’t a little bit busier. They have a nice little in-house gym with cardio machines and free weights. The pool was open but the hot tub was not. Very pleasant stay at a very good rate!

    Thank You

    I stay here to be close to work on times when i have an overnight shift or the weather is too questionable to drive home. I choose this hotel because yes....it is very impeccably clean, the main entrance is very warm, and inviting. The rooms always look like they have never been stayed in and i feel lIke i am the first ever guest in the room....But the main reason i stay here is that i feel SAFE. For me safety and security is everything. Thank you to the entire staff.

    Nice room. Good location. Just disappointed because the signal kept going out on the TV and I was spending New Year’s Eve alone, and just wanted to watch the ball drop, and the tv cut off when the countdown was at 5 seconds. Maybe not the hotels fault. I’m probably just lonely and bitter lol.

    Great Hotel for a great rate

    When I checked in to the hotel Avery Frett helped me check in and made me feel most welcome. Avery made my stay with my family a great one and he went out of his way to help me when I had severe stomach pain. He should be commended for being a great representative of the Hilton brand. The hotel was lovely and quiet and most of all comfortable.
