Never again

Would not recommend Mon, Feb 1, 2016
Stayed 6 night at this hotel wish I didn't book threw a party were no cancelations we allowed or would b charged full price still cause I would have canceled and went someware else employee were ride treated us like drifters just because we booked there super saver room I seen no point for a balcony when I'm not spending time in the room, it started by getting told we wanted am upgrade because r room was located right over ac units that were very loud so upgraded 20$ a night to a better room, get to room and we r over ac units that r loud could smell all the nasty food from there restaurant and there noisy band that was not good playing loud untell 12.Then we had a very out dated microwave witch ohh well but the fridge was even worse there was one of the feet missing we ended up having to put a peace of cardboard under it to stop it from rocking had a bottle fall out because of the rocking shattered all over asked for someone to come clean glass up it took over 6 hrs for someone to come up had to call three times gave them 2 hrs in-between every call and still nothing untell husband called finaly they came up and cleaned it. The fridge didn't even keep anything cold r cooler was colder then the fridge. Horrible service then checking out I was asked how my stay was I told them it was OK disappointed and then walking out I hear the other guest service lady say those economy room people r u kidding me we spent only 10$ a night less than the cost of the very most expensive room exept for the penthouse!! Never again will I stay there don't like being treated like scum Best Western gives you better cust service then this high dollar place. Halls are very dark dingy and hot no climate control at all.

Ok hotel not impressed

Would not recommend Sun, Jan 31, 2016
The stay started out with checking in getting pushed to upgrade room saying it was because r room would b right above a loud ac unit witch we thought was nice of them at first spend 60$ extra and end up being righ over an account unit anyway that's loud as heck. Then we had a glass bottle brake on floor as for someone to clean it up and it took 5+ hrs for them to actually clean it had to call 3 times even had to have my husband call then it got taken care of. Other than that nice hotel but would not stay at this hotel again unless it was the cheapest place would not spend more than 100$ a night on it.. Can get much better place for same price payed for this one

Perfect hotel

Would recommend Sat, Dec 19, 2015
We were very pleased with our stay. Restaurants were a plus. Rooms clean. Impressed with Bath and Body Works Stress scent shampoo and soap. Love that touch. Also my daughter left a wallet in the drawer with cash in it. We realized it a day later. When I called housekeeping, they had it saves for us and are going to mail it to our house. Very happy. Only downfall.....it got really noisy in the am. It was 8am and we heard the constructions men in side lot banging stuffs in dumpster. And a plumber drilling so loud at 8am. So don't plan on sleeping late.

Nice place for a weekend trip

Would recommend Tue, Sep 22, 2015
We came down to catch a couple of Ray's games over the weekend. We have stayed there a few times before, so we knew what to expect and that is good service. Front staff was friendly, food services was great, and the rest of the staff was good as well. We will come back here again, if we get another good deal here.
