Hilton Garden Inn -- Mayfield, OH

You like this one.  These places are usually just fine, and this one's better than most.  The bar staff are quite nice, and they have a couple of local (bottled) beers.  The kitchen is okay, though the salmon is grilled into oblivion.  I'm going to bet that's a corporate policy, not the choice of the chef.

You visited in the winter, and happily they have a good contract with a snow plowing company so that the parking lot egress was cleared by the time you had to leave for work.

The first time you stayed here, your room's heater did not work, but they quickly moved you.  The second time, it all worked right from the start.

Stoneyard Craft Beer Hall and Grill -- Webster, NY

This was a good spot to go after work and get a couple expense reports done.  They've got a couple dozen beers on tap, and no one cares if you're on your laptop.  In fact, the bartender is over at the other end of the beer watching YouTube videos at full volume, so obviously no one cares.

Happily, they had a session IPA, so work was possible ... as well as getting home.  You did not try anything from the kitchen.

Julian's Dry Cleaners & Laundry -- Webster, NY

Hard to tell if you're in a laundromat or an antique store.  Some of these machines might fetch a great price from collectors!  Not much else in the area though.  Try elsewhere first.

Holiday Inn Express -- Webster, NY

Not too bad, if you're stuck here.  Not much around, though.  They have a guest laundry room.  Careful in the winter -- they don't plow the parking lot all that early, so you might end up skiing to the street.
