Decent basic hotel, can't really complain complain.

Check in was easy, the room was clean, and it was nice and quiet. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. Complimentary breakfast was average, nothing special about it for sure. It was good, but nothing to write home about. I am not sure the one night stay was worth $109 though, seems a bit expensive for an average hotel in an average city.

Good shopping getaway

A good location for shopping and restaurants. The only thing I did not like was the bed was too hard.

Great value

For what we paid, we had a very nice room and everything was great. They were very helpful when we called down for a roll-away bed and had it in the room when we got there. The only thing to improve would be to have four sets of towels and wash cloths when you know you have four people staying in a room. Towels were very soft and beds were good.

Traveling through

The hotel might be missed if you don't have solid directions since it is not directly on the street but sits back about half a block from the road behind a David's Bridal store. The room was clean and comfortable. It would seem though that there needs to be stonger maintanence. One lamp had both light bulbs blown and there was a work order on the dresser that had not been completed. Otherwise it was very nice.

short n sweet stay

I stayed overnight while visiting one of the local hospitals. The staff was wonderful, helpful and friendly. The location. Offered many food delivery options and walk able distances too, which was convenient for me because I didn't have a car.
