High School Class Reunion

Never met a more courteous and helpful hotel staff, from the front desk to housekeeping...friendly and competent. Bent over backwards to make my stay pleasant and problem-free. Room was large, comfortable Price was reasonable for the accomodations. Located less than 5 minutes from the airport. I highly recommend this hotel to other travelers.

Positive experience. Good value, room was nothing spectacular but it was clean and comfortable. Staff at front desk was helpful. Only problem was the tub in bathroom didn't drain while showering.

Recupering after surgery...

Had surgery at nearby hospital. Convenient for post-op visit also. Shopping close by plus many wonderful restraunts (try Golden Dragon). Very neat and clean, possibly a bit overzealous in the cleanliness department when staying for several days ;-) Friendly staff... perfect for what was needed and will be staying there again.

Affordable, Comfortable family hotel

This hotel was nice, comfortable, and affordable for our short family trip. The staff was very friendly, kind, and helpful. I can also attest to their honesty. My 10 year-old left his wallet in the sheets and we were able to come back later and get it, everything still intact. They happily helped with all our requests, including extra pillows, and did their utmost to make us comfortable. The only slight draw-back was that the breakfast buffet didn't have eggs or meat of any kind. But they still had plenty to choose from and peanut butter made up for the protein the eggs/meat would have provided. Also, the room did have a coffee maker and ice bucket but no fridge or microwave. The hotel was right next to Lincoln's tomb and had lots of beautiful trees in bloom all over, including a Magnolia tree right at the entrance. :-)

Great Stay

Right near state fairgrounds. Great staff made adjustment to fix the one problem we had. Only thing to pat attention to is the entrance is easy to miss in the dark.
