Value for money is decreasing. Gradually facilities are wearing down, service is decreasing and breakfast is diminishing in quality and choices. Still ok for a night's sleep however.

Good Hotel

Room spacious and clean. Free breakfast has good choices. Rates are a bit too high for a location right next to I-75. Highway it is on is very busy and difficult to get across
