Good hotel

I stayed there with my family and it was nice we had a room and it had a dorr leading to the pool area. The only thing they could do better is to maybe give free breakfast since your paying to stay there and all that. But the location you would think is great because I thought that and one of my bags was stolen from my car.

Quick weekend visit

Room was clean and was above the pool area. The bed was comfortable, the smell of chlorine came into the room but was not completely overwhelming. The complimentary breakfast was great.

Business Trip

Hotel is located right off of the interstate and close to other stores on Delaware Ave. Thats the only good thing that I can say about this place. The room was pretty outdated, carpets were old, the corridor carpets were not clean, air conditioner remote control was not working. I was there for 2 days and the dirt/crumbs on the corridor carpet were still there. The air conditioner, when put on energy saver mode, would never run. I had to get up and keep tweaking the temperature constantly to feel comfortable and if you let it run continuously its just too loud to hear the TV or sleep properly. Dont know why its called a 3 star hotel and I would categorize it as 2 or 2.5 star. I visit a Best Western (close to my area) for monthly meetings which looks decent from the outside and assumed they all would be relatively similar. I guess I was mistaken. I will not be staying in another one.

Thanksgiving visit

The hotel was very comfortable with very friendly and helpful staff. The free breakfast was an unusual and excellent sit down and order process. The rooms were clean and accommodating and the pool and exercise room were excellent. We will use the hotel again on our future trips.
