Great family getaway

The accommodations were perfect for my 2-day stay. The front desk staff was available for my late arrival. The room was clean and it was great to have a refrigerator and cooking facilities right in the room.

Fun weekend

Overall, a great value. The extra space provided by the suite was welcome. The hotel is in an excellent location, close to shopping, restaurants and other attractions. We're sure to stay there again in the future!

Not quite what we expected

Personal was absent from the front desk, so needed to call for them on the phone. No ice was available, so needed to make trip out for that. Did not like being put in "Smoking Room". There was no other room available for us.

Just OK

This property is just OK. The heating unit in the room is very noisy. The bed and pillows were just adequate...could have been much nicer.
