Nice Place

The room was nice and big, the bathroom was small though. Overall the room was clean, however we found some empty hair care bottles left under the bed. I would stay at this hotel again! And in addition, you will be charged almost $9 to park, it does not notify you on the site.

Fantastic affordable luxury

I was impressed with the professionalism and friendliness of the staff. The room was cleaner and more comfortable than more expensive hotels I have frequented. I don't know what was better the hospitality or the delicious breakfast I had at e hotel restaurant. This is a comfortable room with a great view at sunset.

Not Bad

We were staying in town for a wedding. The location was the best part. Overall I would say the hotel is on par with what one would expect from Holiday Inn. Room was kept clean, but for the price it wasn't very fancy.

positive experience

First, the room was very clean, the heating easy to adjust after we figured it out, space adequate for a roll-away, and lighting adequate. Location-wise, the hotel is very close to the University, which met our requirements. The cost was very reasonable, also. Only thing that was lacking was a hot tub.
