I am sorry to say that this was a typical, "get to the room and discover that the view promised is not quite the view expected". Yes, I technically had a view of Table Rock Mountain, if I positioned myself in a very uncomfortable stance.
However, the view was a minor point. I did have some views of the local topography. The location is pretty good in that it is convenient to places to eat. The parking garage is also very convenient.
The hotel room, itself, is basic. It was clean and well functioning, but basic.
The public areas are somewhat limited. There is a restaurant, but it really did not have a bar and was not, by any means, a gathering place other than for breakfast. There is a small pool, which no one seemed to use.
I would recommend staying here. It is clean, friendly and the room was spacious and contained everything I needed.
