Trip to the Zoo

Stayed here for convenient access to the Como Zoo. The uniqueness of a hotel in an old train repair station was a draw but we were blown away with how well done the building was. While the rooms were nothing to rave about they were your standard hotel fare however, slightly above average. All the amenities you would want or need.

Great Hotel!

I stayed at this hotel this past weekend and I wished my conference went longer so I could've enjoyed my stay longer. Great comfortable beds, clean and elegant setup and friendly staff. I will be staying there again when I'm in town.

business trip

Everything was great. We are on the main floor with a patio door to the pool and breakfast area. This made the stay a little noisy during the day, but quiet at night. Would definitely stay again.

Disappointed

Stuffy, no fan, no exterior windows, no temperature control. Had to leave noisey bathroom fan on all night. Breakfast was 'uninspired' at best.

Too expensive for what offers

The hotel is a maze inside. To find your room is terrible as the signs are not clear and the staff not very helpful. Too expensive for what really is....will not return.

AvrAGE ACOMODATIONS

This hotel was average accommodations for the price. The bathroom was very small. I realize we did not request a ADA room but I was surprised by the small size. Good TV and continental breakfast.

Cleaned my room of all my personal Items

I returned to my room to find that it had been serviced so well that all of my personal items and food from the refrigerator were gone. When I went to the front desk I was told the manager was not there and that they could not do anything until he got there the next morning. I called the manager, Troy Angerhofer, and he set up a meeting time with me at 6:45 the next morning. When he finally arrived at 8:00 the next morning he told me there was nothing he could do and openly said that he did not believe my claims of my items being stolen from my room. He offered me candy as a compensation to the items taken from my room. I will not be going back to this Hotel nor will I ever recommend it to anyone.
