Good overnight experience!

This hotel was perfect for us, close enough to all the ArtPrize activities, about 10 minutes by car, and at a really reasonable price. It also has a small pool which was nice to relax in.

WILL NEVER BE BACK

Red flags started at check in.. when I was told there was a $50.00 deposit so we did not smoke in the room.. then it was them trying to tell me i needed to get a bigger room because my 5 year old was with us and the room was only big enough for 2... and we would not get that at the discounted rate.. even though she sleeps with us at home.. after talking to management it was taken care of.. but then when we got to the room it STUNK like someone had been smoking in it for years.,. and because my husband did not want to have the $50 deposit held he called the front desk and the lady accused him of already smoking in there... he informed her we had just walked into the room.. she came down to spay some air freshener.. While My daughter and I were in the pool(spent just enough time in the room to get our suits on..) maybe 5 min.. my husband realized some of the rooms had doors leading straight outside... and being a smoker in a nonsmoking hotel it would be more convenient but when called down to see if we could switch he got told you can only switch within the first 15 min of having the room(was never told about this) Then when you would need new towels they would count the ones you were giving back and only give you what was in your room and not a washrag more.. then I realized i forgot my razor at home so i went to the front desk to get one.. and the lady acted like i was bugging her cause i asked her to grab me something..

Not the best experience

My stay was not the best. I was not please with the area the hotel was located. I booked not familiar with the area. A drunk man tried to get into my room at 3:30 am and would not go away. When I tried to call the front desk the front desk button on the phone was broken. Luckily I had my confirmation paper in my purse and was able to use my cell phone. What would I have done if I didn't have the paper with me. I was traveling with my daughter and my sister and we were very frightened.

Good lodging

I was in town for a meeting and last minute had to bring my children along. The room was fine, not too old or shabby but clean and in good repair. It was quiet on the nights I was there. It was in easy access of the highway and even though I saw some less attractive hotels around, this one was nice inside and out and looked a lot safer. Over all, for the price, it was a real bargain.

Decent Stay

Came to a concert at Van Andal. Staff were very attentive. Room was clean. Price was decent. No major frills, but none expected.

Good for the cost

The room was clean except it smelled of mold- I had to buy room freshioner to kill the smell... Other than that it was a good deal- Easy access to highway..

Needs Improvement

Needed a last minute hotel for cheap near downtown. It said it would be non-smoking, but it smelled like smoke and there was an ash tray in the room (our clothes/we smelled like smoke after leaving). For a quick night with not much time spent in the room it wasn't horrible, but definitely not a place to stay for longer than one night. If they just cleaned up the smell, it would be a million times better. Beds were fine and plenty of towels, but could be updated. The location was really good for getting quickly to and from downtown.
