    « Nice »

    A nice little hotel. Clean and looks recently renovated (?). Pleasant staff and restaurants nearby. Not difficult to get to but you can drive right past it if you aren't looking on this bustling thoroughfare. Far enough off the road to be quiet, which is nice.

    « Love this place »

    This was the best dog friendly place we've ever stayed. Room was spotless and very comfortable. We stayed with our 2 show dogs - a Great Dane and golden retriever. We were able to get a non smoking room so no worries about that horrible cigarette smell on them and us. We had all the comforts of home. Will stay here again.

    « Hotel condones harassing and threatening guests »

    Staying here over Memorial Day and several other drunken guests decided to be loud until close to 11:00 o'clock at night. After several calls to the front desk and the clerk being threatened by these guests, they stood outside our room and declared that they would make as much noise as they wanted. I was followed to the front desk while I made a complaint and threatened as I returned to my room. We had to move to another hotel because we feared for our safety while the drunken trouble makers were allowed to stay.

    « Great weekend getaway. »

    We went to Pa Grand Canyon and Wellsboro for a weekend getaway. Beautiful color to the mountains. This Best Western was only 40 minutes away and we had a very pleasant stay. Loved the staff. Easy access.

    « Good For 1 Night Stay »

    Good for 1 night stay. Double bed room was small for 3 people but manageable. Continental breakfast was prefect in the morning. Waffles, toast, eggs, sausage, cereal, juices, coffee. Everything you could want for breakfast, they have! Located right beside TGI Fridays, which was a perfect spot to have dinner after a long day of driving. Front desk staff and breakfast staff very friendly, kind and helpful. Nice spot to stay for visiting the Little League World Series museum and stadium grounds. One of the rooms near us was having a bachelorette party in the middle of the night, which was annoying as we were trying to sleep. We saw their party bus in the morning. Don't know how long it lasted but it was long enough to disturb you. Other than the noise it was a good spot.

    « A good place for a stopover »

    As with all Best Western sites, this hotel was a comfortable place to stay. It was nicely decorated and clean, but not quite as "posh" as we have grown accustomed to with this chain. We were near the stairway and heard some noise early in the evening, so were dreading what might happen later on. Fortunately, this did not materialize.

    « Reasonable for the Price »

    Arrived in the evening and left early in the morning so cannot comment on the amenities other than the breakfast which was your standard complimentary breakfast. The room was clean but a bit dated. The hotel was fine for a short stay.

    Dirty Carpet. That's all I have to say noisy pool area children out of control. Won't be back. I don't have two hundred characters to waste on this. Or the time to count them. I think there are more than 200 now if not will give up

    « Great Location for the Little League World Series »

    Very comfortable place to stay when you're on the go to watch the Little League World Series! Ideally located within 2 Miles of driving distance to the Ball Field. Easy to get to and from the Hotel! Breakfast was fantastic, Egg Omlets and an assortments of breakfast items to choose from wether your on a diet or not! LOL!!!

    « Clean but very outdated »

    Just OK. This hotel is sorely outdated. What saved it for us was that the room and pool area were very clean, so we felt OK staying there, and we were able to get a low rate. The furnishings and finishes are very basic and somewhat mismatched. There is an outdoor pool with chairs and tables that are mismatched and look as if they have been purchased locally. The front desk staff is friendly, but they did not seem knowledgeable--we checked out with gift certificates and the desk attendant didn't know how to process them. This is an old-fashioned set up where the rooms open to the outdoors. In addition to the large pool area, there is a small gazebo and some larger groups gathered there at night. Nice if you have a group, but I can imagine that it could be a problem for others if the people were loud. VERY large space for free breakfast with some hot food. That was a pleasant surprise. TGI Friday's is attached and there is a lot of shopping and dining close by. Easy on and off highway. Huge closet space.

    « Might have been a great stay... »

    My family and I stayed during LLWS, a change up from our normal hotel. First room we were given had been cleaned, I'm guessing, halfway. One towel in the bathroom and dead gnats on one of the beds- I'm guessing from cleaning with the door open as there are exterior corridors? I was about to call downstairs for more towels when we figured out the door did not lock. As in you could push the door in from the outside. We called the front desk and they were more than accommodating, even bringing new keys to the room but did not want to see what we were talking about. The new room was cleaned much better. The outdoor pool is quite small for what you would think and the ground around the pool had something similar to peat moss floating in pools of water. We did not have time to stay for breakfast, weekends are served at 7 am and we had to leave well before. If the stay had been the usual $100 a night, maybe it would be worth it, but the price was doubled due to the event in town. Not worth $200.

    « WOW to the free breakfast! »

    Not only was everyone very helpful and courteous, but the room was clean and comfortable. The big surprise was the FULL breakfast they provide including an omelette station. Much more than expected. Here for the little league World Series and this is a welcome amenity for a family with children. Would have liked real butter on my bagel but for free I can't complain

    « Don't go during a Family reunion......(That's not yours) »

    OMG, The Family over ran the place, with kids, dogs and rude people! We were there from Friday till Monday but they all left Sunday morning. They put a sign on the pool gate saying it was closed for family (no one informed us on check in) They partied on the Saturday nite by the pool till 1:30 in the moring .....Where is the STAFF in charge? The manager who showed up Monday morning apologized and made some compensation but our weekend way ruined by the noise, kids with water guns and yappy dogs! Also crazies looking for ice at every machine at 4 AM. I had a flea jump across my chest while in bed.....how nice is that! Might be better acomodations elsewhere!

    « Great family stay during Little League World Series »

    We had a great time staying here during the Little League World Series. The staff was amazing. Diana, our housekeeper, went above and beyond to make us comfortable. The hot breakfast was a definite plus. Internet service was not so good when the hotel was at capacity. Lots of kids and baseball fans. Good memories for our family staying here.

    Stayed here only one night, and would stay here again if in the area. Very nice room, friendly staff, very nice breakfast. The only problem was the mattress was not the most comfortable. Has a pool, although we didn't have time to use it. We didn't think it was noisy.

    « High Quality Review »

    Great Staff / Room / Amenities / Location / Excellent Value for the $$. A/C in our room was OK, but not strong, we did not report the problem because we were leaving that morning. We did not receive our 7:00 AM Wake Up Call, but we had also set the alarms on our phones so we were fine. Exceptional & Friendly Staff and the numerous pluses we experienced far outweigh the 2 minor issues we had.

    « Clean, but noise is unbearable »

    There is a family reunion with several children who are pounding on the walls, racing desk chairs up and down the sidewalk, screaming. The room is very clean and spacious, but the other guests have ruined our stay. The location is nice with many restaurants nearby.

    Overall we were pleased with our stay. Our room was clean. Nothing special, but perfect for one night. The sheets felt "well washed" but at least they were clean and fresh. Location was great with easy access to lots of dining and shopping options. We would stay again next time we are in the area.

    « This place is HUGE »

    I found this place on Trip Advisor & was very pleased w/ it. They had a huge lot on the side to park my truck & the girl at the counter hooked me w/ a room by itself, way off in the back corner. I went running in the surrounding n/hood & it is like the epitome of scenic & peaceful. The outside pool was decent size, the exercise room was pretty weak, though. There was 4 dumbbells & it was really small. All the staff that I met were super friendly & the B/fast was awesome, stocked well w/ many hot & cold choices. The scenery is out of this world up here. I would def stay here again. Be blessed!

    « Clean and comfortable »

    The best western was a great stay. I'd stay here again! Our room was clean, bathroom, linens extra. The bed was comfortable and big. The room was up-to-date with nice semi-modern decor. The staff was SUPER friendly, kind and helpful. They were welcoming when we entered. Speedy with the transaction and gave helpful tips and information that we needed/possibly wanted to know. The pool was small but great on a hot day! The kids loved it! They had nice lounge chair. Modern anti-gravity. Overall a wonderful experience. I'd stay again and recommend to friends!

    « Nice Motel, Nice price »

    Our girls travel softball team stayed for two nights. The rooms were clean and the motel's staff was great. Our girls had a very early game and the staff backed our team breakfast in a bag to accommodate our teams needs. This was above and beyond expectations. The motel was also very close to shopping and restaurants.

    « Best Western is absolutely the Best! »

    We traveled to the area to pick up an eBay purchased vehicle and stayed overnight at Best Western. Very nice room and really comfortable beds! Room was very clean and everything expected was there (coffee maker and coffee, microwave, refrigerator. Being on ground level, we were able to park right in front of the room so loading/unloading was easy. I highly recommend this hotel if you're in the area!

    We were passing through and stayed the night at the Best Western. The rooms were fairly large, and very clean. The bed was comfortable, and the shower was good. There was a TGI Friday's on the premises for dinner. They had the typical Best Western breakfast buffet, which was filling with good quality.

    « A Pleasant Experience »

    From the newly renovated rooms to the cleanliness of the grounds and public areas everything deserves an A+ The hotel is in walking distance to many restaurants (also has one attached) and shopping. The free hot breakfast was great with eggs and sausage, waffles, bagels, pastries, fruit, cereal and yogurt. The employees were very nice and helpful. I will definitely stay at this hotel again when I am in the Williamsport area.

    « First and last stay »

    Full disclosure: I do not like hotels where the rooms open directly to the outdoors (as opposed to hotels with interior hallways). And, I got this room fhrough an online deal. Let me also say upfront that the staff here are excellent, warm, friendly, and lovely. I felt very welcomed, and i go the impression there was little they wouldn't do for a guest. Very refreshing, although I always find people in Williamsport exceptionally friendly. BUT even the best staff cannot make up for poorly planned facilities and rude guests. This was my first stay at a Best Western, and it will be my last. The desk manager was lovely and terrific. So were the cleaning staff, who helpfully showed me to my room. However, I had issues with the way this facility is built. I didn't feel particularly safe, and the way it's built magnifies every tiny little noise Concrete walkways magnify footsteps, and concrete canopies over the walkways, plus a building that is built with different sections - again, with walkways and canopies -- act like a huge echo chamber It's horrible. Around 11 pm a large group (family) of people, taking up, I'd guess, 3 separate rooms, arrived, made a lot of noise Knocking on each others' doors, kids, I heard furniture scraping around, yelling -- just non-stop noise. I nearly called management, and I should have; they probably would have addressed it ... but I don't think these people would have got the message. They were just culturally loud people. So, having been kept awake, I was awakened early in the morning by people leaving. Why? Because they slam their doors, talk in loud voices, and don't give a hoot that they might be disturbing other guests. The cleaning staff are to be admired for being on the job early, but their carts squeak and make lots of noise as they go up and down the sidewalk. Again, early in the morning. In fact, a cleaning person knocked and opened my door. Thankfully I had it semi-locked -- but why disturb people when they haven't checked out, and you know they will? Is that such a huge problem to solve? It's called a list. I opened the ice bucket and to my disgust, saw a bucket full of water with two old creamers floating in it. Towels were hard and scratchy as nails, not very white. Bath towels were small. The massage shower head apparently had broken at one point, so instead of putting in a new unit, they improvised a second holder that didn't fit. Consequently when I turned on the shower the shower head jumped out of the holder and sprayed me and the entire bathroom. Went to breakfast, and the same rude neighbor family was in the breakfast room, taking up about 4 tables they'd put together, loudly talking, uncontrolled children making the other guests cringe. One was walking out with her breakfast, looking rather unhappy, as I came in, and I soon found out why. Another young family sat at the other end of the room, away from them, and another couple sat unhappily in their seats. I made my breakfast and took it back to my room. (Only to be disturbed by the cleaning person) People, if you're staying in a hotel, get a clue. It's not all about you. I don't think this was a bad family; they were probably nice but they come from a loud culture. I'm not at all a prejudiced person, anything in my life would bear that out -- but I felt if I complained, it would be viewed as a semi-bias attack. For all I know they'd saved for some time to go on vacation, or perhaps were on their way to somewhere special. I didn't want to ruin their trip ... but why do other guests have to suffer from thoughtless, noisy people? Be a good guest. Talk in quiet voices. If you must check in late, do so quietly If you're an early bird, be quiet for those who aren't, or for those who have been kept up all night by their noisy neighbors. Close your door quietly. No need to slam. Be considerate! And if you're in a public dining space, don't hog all the seats and make it difficult for other guests to get their meals and enjoy the common dining area. Oh, and I was greeted by the sound of a motorcycle starting up outside my door. No, the parking area was not near our rooms. Someone had parked his bike outside his room. It was very nice of management to accommodate him, I'm sure he was worried about his bike being stolen. But have some consideration! Walk your bike out to the parking area, and then start it. I mean, really. I feel bad writing a negative review. The manager is clearly concerned about her guest and the quality of her staff. I don't think anything is mismanaged here; in fact, I think it's managed rather well, from what i could see. But when guests are thoughtless, staff had a limited ability to fix the problem. I'm sure if I'd asked they would have found another room for me -- but did I really want to pack everything up at midnight and move? No. Nor should I have to. Never, never again will I stay at a Best Western. The point is to sleep, and I couldn't.

    « Room clean but mattresses and door locks needed updating/fixing »

    We stayed here with family who were in other rooms - 3 rooms altogether- and all three of our rooms had difficulty with the door locks; as in, we had to keep pulling it to make sure it locked (we were in Rm 123). Otherwise, if we just closed it normally, we could open it right up. We commented on the door locks but felt that although the staff heard us they weren't about to do anything about it. The mattresses are older and not very comfortable. But the continental breakfast was decent as was the coffee and our room was clean.

    « Very Clean With a Hot Breakfast! »

    We really enjoyed our stay at the Best Western Williamsport Inn. From checkin to breakfast, this hotel stood out. Our room was nice and very clean. There is a TGI Friday's right next door, and after a long day on the road it was nice to be able to walk to dinner. The restaurant was also a cut above most TGI Friday's, so that was a bonus. The thing that sets this Best Western apart is it's breakfast. They serve a hot breakfast, including scrambled eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy, and bagels, along with the regular hotel breakfast fare in a breakfast room off of the pool. They were doing some grounds work on the property - replacing sidewalks and fixing the parking lot. It was a small inconvenience, but the staff and workers were very helpful and friendly about it. It did make it tricky to find the ice and breakfast, but it wasn't the end of the world. I recommend this Best Western and would stay here again

    Had lost faith in Best Western due to a bad experience last fall at a BW in Chambersburg, Pa. Drove the extra miles on our way home, headed to Williamsport and held our breath. It was SO worth it! Clean, quiet, comfortable, and a great staff. Great night sleep, and a good breakfast for the last leg home. Will certainly make this a permanent stop-over from now on. Thank you BW Williamsport!

    I stay about once to twice a month for business. My room is always clean and comfortable. The hotel offers an outdoor pool, fitness center and free breakfast. They also have a TGIF restaurant on site. Staff is friendly and always remembers me by name. The only draw back for me is the rooms are adjacent to the parking lot so from a safety perspective anyone can approach your door without passing through a lobby.

    « Nice Staff but.... »

    This was my 4th stay in less than 2 years (I have family in the area) and probably my last. The people manning the front desk and the housekeepers are very nice and I think they try hard. Unfortunately maintenance issues throughout the property are not being kept up with and the outside appearance of the place is visibly decaying. Inside the rooms it's not much better. This stay I was with other family members and we had multiple rooms. One was so smoky we had to open the windows and run the fan for hours in the afternoon before even thinking about closing up to try to sleep in it in the evening (we were there in March so there was no thought of leaving the windows open all night!). We did notify the front desk and were told "sometimes people smoke in the rooms - sorry". The room had sticky areas in the carpet and when someone stood up after sitting in the (only) chair it sounded like velcro it was so sticky. The rest of our rooms were just "tired". I think the housekeepers try to do what they can but honestly it appears that the management of this Best Western have decided to let this place go. Too bad-

    « Great value and location »

    Hotel had excellent value for prices, conveniently located near restaurants. The only disappointing item at breakfast were the eggs, which appeared to be from a powered mix. Mentioned to front desk, they will inquire. Everything else was very good. Would recommend to others and we would come back again.

    « Disappointing »

    We have stayed at this hotel multiple times and never had as bad of an experience as we had this time. We had stayed 2 weeks prior and the guest in the next room kept us up all night. This was corrected appropriately by management. When we arrived this time it was questionable how well our room had been cleaned. We always travel with cleaning supplies so instead of saying anything we spent the first couple hours cleaning our room. The floor was dirty, the dest chair was covered in we don't know what and the desk had cup rings of stickiness. We were very disappointed but continued on to enjoy our weekend. That night our heat wasn't warming the room and it was cool most of the night. The next morning we decided to speak up about what we had found. Management acknowledge our concerns. We did not expect anything for free but don't deserve to pay full price for less than acceptable accommodations. When we checked out there was no compensation for our concerns and the manager on duty said as we were walking away "oh I'll just give you double points for this stay." What I really find odd is EVERY time we stay there we have gotten and email the day after to review our stay...this stay almost a week later still have not gotten the email. So I am going to assume...if you complain they remove your email address so that you don't get the survey...that makes them look better. I doubt that even though we have enjoyed our stay and have quite the amount of reward points saved up that we will every stay there again. There are many other hotels in the area that we can give our business to and we won't have to clean our own room. It is a shame what they do to their "valued" customers...turning them away.

    hotel was fine - a little run down but ok - except for the room. The bathroom was so small they put the sink in the room in front of the bed. Hotel staff said that's the way all the corner rooms are - but it is unacceptable, carpet in the room goes under the sink and could not be clean. connected to a TGIF which was good, in a easy to get to location in Williamsport

    The room was great. It was clean and very well kept. The bed was very comfortable. The staff was friendly and friendly. I like the fact that TGIF was right next door. This was my second stay at this location and I am very pleased.

    I really enjoyed my stay at the Best Western. The staff was very friendly and the room was very nice. Clean and comfortable. I even took advantage of the on site laundry while I was there. My room was right across from the room where they serve breakfast so it was a little loud and busy in the morning as to be expected but nothing that would deter me from staying there again. If you wanted to sleep late I'd just suggest a room farther from the common areas. I have already recommended this place to family who were in the area to visit.

    When in Williamsport, PA on business, we always book in at the Best Western. It is is a convenient location, staff is friendly and helpful, rooms are clean and a nice breakfast is included. Yu cannot beat this BW for the price. Highly recommended

    « Very nice with just one problem »

    I stayed here for three nights recently and I was very happy with the accommodations and amenities. I did have one unusual problem which I'd never encountered anywhere before. I sleep with a white noise generator which usually drowns out any extraneous sounds that might waken me or keep me awake. But the heavy doors here, if left to shut on their own, give out the loudest SLAMS I have ever heard anywhere. For two out of the three nights, I was awakened by nearby doors slamming and had trouble getting back to sleep. I hate to say it, but because of this, I don't intend to ever stay here again.

    Always enjoy staying here! Appreciate that they are pet friendly, rooms are clean and nicely appointed. Staff is always friendly. I feel safe staying there alone. Its is in a convenient location. Excellent value for the cost of stay.

    « Great value, Good Quality »

    As a regular visitor to hometown Williamsport from Orlando Fl, we had stayed at a nearby '60's style motel with competitive rates. However, we had found during our last stay this last summer, that the gas company workers had increasingly deteriorated the rooms to the extent that the rooms were unfit sanitary wise. It was time to change. This was the first time at the Best Western and now know that our previous searches for this hotel was for the Holiday Inn, as we remembered from the past. We always dismissed the hotel due to the high rates. We finally found the location the same and booked for a week this last Christmas season. The room was found to be large, carpets clean, modernized amenities and most importantly clean and fresh bedding. One negative, is the fitness equipment is outdated.

    Had to stay in town due to a work issue. I had my wife book my room here, so glad she did. The room was spotless and comfortable. The girl who checked me in was incredibly helpful. Her name was Taylor and she was awesome. While I don't live too far away I would not hesitate to stay here again.

    « Comfy cozy and all the necessities nearby. »

    We visited Williamsport to catch up with friends over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. We got a really great deal on a king sized room. We have stayed in Williamsport other times, but this is the best centrally located Inn in the area. The employees were the best, friendly and helpful. Breakfast was yummy, just enough to get us on our way. We will probably return here next time we head to the area.

    We enjoy our stays at the Best Western Williamsport Inn. We stay there often to visit family. It is well located and the staff is very friendly. We like the free breakfast and the nightly popcorn snack in the office.

    « Nice spot to stay with a small dog »

    We stayed with our small dog overnight - he is just over 1 yr and hears and yes sometimes barks at everything. While many hotels are pet friendly just as this one, they all tend to be loud. Every door that shuts, other guests walking through the internal corridors, etc. This hotel is solid, not a lot of banging or echo's of other guests. Lots of rooms with their own access door and parking right in front of their rooms. For all these reasons, I was very happy with our choice.

    « Good value for the money »

    Nice staff, clean rooms, chain bar/restaurant attached, right in the middle of a commercial district. Plenty of free parking. Rooms on backside, facing pool, are very quiet. What more could you ask for ?

    « Great hotel at a great price! »

    I have always liked this hotel as it is situated right in the heart of the commercial district. If you don't want to use the TGI Fridays, there are many other restaurants within walking distance, although it may be easier to drive. The rooms are very nice, too.

    « Spacious Room, Very Clean »

    If you need a room for the night, this Best Western is clean and the rooms are spacious. Staff are pleasant and helpful. Excellent value for the price. Easily found by car, it is located adjacent to a TGIF restaurant on an outlying street, not downtown. We had a room located facing the center of the room. It was very quiet. It should be noted this is an older property and has outside corridors, so suspect it might not be easily accessible if snowing or icy.

    Noisy plumbing in that we could hear both the room toilet as well as adjacent room plumbing all night. Old style noisy heating/cooling system not centrally controlled. Motor lodge set-up with associated noise level of guests (and staff) outside smoking.

    « Great for the price »

    I was looking for a room on the cheaper end of the spectrum. I was there for business. This hotel had a great price and it included breakfast. It is hard to beat that. I would stay there again. For this range of hotel, I don't think you can get much better at this price.

    « Perfect weekend away »

    Walking distance to many good restaurants plus in house restaurant, didn't have to drive anywhere. Just relaxed. Breakfast included, great internet. comfortable beds, lots of channels. Would stay again as this is central location for all of us to meet.

    My son and I went to this area to look at a college. It was a four hour drive so we decided to spend the night, check out the college in the morning, then leave. The hotel was a bit expensive ,but the cheapest one in the area. Nice location ,T.G.I.Fridays right next door and other dining options close by. Overall good deal!

    « Loved Our Stay »

    After a long drive, we were ready for some TLC. It started with the reception staff and getting a clean, comfortable room. Lots of parking here so no worries if you are towing something. Room was clean although dated, bed comfortable. Bathroom could have more light, but acceptable. Breakfast did not disappoint! Staff again were courteous and helpful. We would not hesitate to stay here again. Don't forget to sample the fresh popcorn in the lobby!

    « Great for a quick overnight »

    Nothing fancy here, but the room was very clean, the staff very friendly, the breakfast fine, the fitness center in working order (although not the most high-tech equipment). A quick overnight, but everyone slept well and a trouble free visit. Our room was on the first floor, facing the parking lot, so a bit loud early in the evening, but not too bad. If noise bothers you, ask for a room facing the interior, not the parking lot.

    « Satisfactory plain hotel »

    My Hotwire room was on the second floor at the back corner of the property, but that was fine because there was a stairway right there to give me access to the exterior corridor by my room. I had a very comfortable king bed, desk, microwave, microfridge, TV on chest for clothes storage. Sink area was in main room area, but with no towel rack (demerit). Everything worked well. Some additional electrical outlets at desk and bedside. No chair other than the desk chair, so no place to sit and read or watch TV. I give the towels a D. They could dry me, but barely. Shaving light was OK. Heating/cooling worked fine. Check-in/out were efficient and friendly. Adjacent TGI Friday restaurant and other restaurants nearby.

    OK stay, bed comfortable and room quiet. Seems old and worn? Part of old impression maybe due to all the loose hardware, bathroom door handle fell of, hand holds in bathroom untrustworthy. Needs maintenance in the worst way. Passed on to front desk. Average breakfast.

    Two night stay. Very clean rooms. Housekeeper Diane, and Linda from the great breakfast area were superb. Made our stay much more enjoyable. These two should be commended for their great service and awesome personalities.

    « 1 Night Stay »

    Well, we found the location ideal for our purposes and the welcome upon arrival was friendly and welcoming. Our room was located at the back of the building and, although there wasn't anything in particular, it didn't feel clean....maybe it was the carpet. Also, the window (which faced the parking lot...ground floor) didn't lock. I mentioned it to the front desk and was told not to worry and call them if we heard anything. Needless to say, we were still uneasy as the windows are large enough to walk through. Overall, mixed feelings about the hotel. We wouldn't stay a second time.

    « Clean and professional »

    « Nice place to stay »

    Would definitely stay here again. Had a wedding in town and we're rewards members which made it an easy choice for us. The rooms were clean but the beds were small is my only complaint. Room for my family and I. Free breakfast which had eggs, sausage, etc. very normal continental breakfast but was filling. Connected to a TGI Friday's which was good that we didn't have to drive anywhere to eat. Plenty of places to eat surrounding it also. They had an outside pool so no swimming in September! Staff was friendly. Good place to stay!
