We have stayed at this property several times over the years. The first time it was a Holiday inn and subsequent visits as a Howard Johnson. We will never return ... ever. A few minor inconveniences or annoyances appeared almost immediately. When the in-room mini fridge turned on, the compressor made an un-godly noise for a few minutes then fell...

The rooms are very comfortable and spacious. Clean and kept up. Billing was my only issue. Could be do to lack of communication or understanding. But that did not take away from my stay completely.

We stayed at this hotel recently and was pleased. It was comfortable and most importantly, it was clean. Checkin went smooth and front desk was helpful. Breakfast bar could have had a better variety but it was ok. There is a Cracker Barrell next door so that wasn't really an issue. Overall, a good stay.
