This is a newer HIE (a couple of years old if I had to guess). Check in was easy and we were welcomed with a couple of bottles of cold water, which was appreciated. Wonderful, helpful people behind the front desk who recommended restaurants. The room was large, clean and the shower had a high shower head (even for tall people like my 6’4” husband) with great water pressure. They had freshly baked cookies and an assortment of daily snacks (nuts, candy, chips) in the late afternoon. Plus they had a manager’s welcome appetizer hour with meatballs, crudités, chips, potato and green salad, soft drinks and beer for $1 one evening. They no longer were able to give beer away, so they charged each beer to your room. My only negative comment is that there was only 1 chair in the room, a desk chair would have been so nice in addition to the comfy chair. Because this is a newer hotel, great Southern hospitality, wonderful people behind the front desk, manager’s welcome appetizer hour and snacks, I would say that this is the best HIE that we’ve ever stayed at. I would give it more than 5 stars if given the opportunity.
