Adequate if you're in a pinch

My flight was cancelled due to bad weather. The airline offered a discounted rate at some of the nicer hotels but this was even cheaper. I see why. Also it cost $16 to get here from airport which is 10 minutes away. Pool is opened until 10pm and Continental Breakfast is edible. It's an OK solution if you're in a bind.

Only going to get better..

This is a property in transition from old to updated.. and has a great staf that will definitely help this to be a top quality Hotel... it has a nice pool... and they DO provide a nice touch of Hot foods on the breakfast bar..WAFFLES... great for cold NE mornings.. rooms are being tweeked.. but are totally comfortable even now.. need to invest in some new pillows.. some deformed in the dryer.. but other than than... it was a very good buy and very nice. I would love to see a jacuzzi tub added to the pool room. There is a well appointed exercise room

loud fan, little staff help, nice breakfast

fan and heater had some problem at about 3am whre they would click on and off waking our daughter and us about every 10-20minutes. By 5am she couldn't fall back asleep. We mentioned it to staff and they said "Oh, well, the fan has to click on or the heater could blow up!" There is a nice fireplace in the lobby but asked if it turned on diff front desk said "I have no idea" Breakfast staff was nice and warm biscuits, hard boiled eggs, breakfast burritos ...it was substantial, more than we expected. rooms old and worn looking but fine. Pool space nice but too cold to stay long. Again staff said only manager can adjust heat and she isn't here.

Romantic Getaway

My significant other and I wanted to get a three-star experience with great amenities and staffing in a location close to the airport. However, we didn't expect that every time we left our room that our keys wouldn't work. Even when I left my key far away from cell phones, credit cards, keys or anything, I would have to run downstairs to get the cards re-swiped to gain access. There wasn't a hallway phone to contact anyone, a bellman or any other person offering service to make this daily routine any easier either. The front desk offered nothing for the repeated inconvenience either. That was another thing, no bellman service for luggage, no elevator for the second level, and fortunately the stairwell wasn't too creepy. When we came to check in we had to call out for service, waiting for someone to man the front desk for at least 15 minutes. All of those things aside, ample parking, nice breakfast, quaint open space pool, nice room with tall ceilings.
