I had to come to the area for work. I love this place. The food is great and the rooms are very comfy. Also, they are pet friendly. One time I brought my dog.

Very comforting and friendly staff. Za went above and beyond to meet our needs.

The room is nicely decorated. The bed was comfortable except there is only a down comforter which was too warn for me. I would have liked a lighter cotton blanket. The breakfast was fantastic.

Everything was fine until we went to bed and found someone's socks in the bed. I spoke to the front desk about this on Monday morning and was told the manager would contact me when they got in that da. The manager still has not contacted me.

This hotel is located behind a very good restaurant where it is quiet -no sounds of the road. Very nice landscaping on the outside and a very tasteful elegant back in time atmosphere inside. Our ck-in was very pleasant plus impressive as everything was immediately put into the computer for which I am glad as we'll be back again. It would be so wonderful if they could have an indoor-pool and spa in the future as I am sure future patrons would appreciate and it would be a good investment esp given all the events they host there.

I've stayed at this hotel a few times, as the location is perfect for me. Overall it is very nice, and the restaurant and bar are quite good. Room service delivers until 11pm, which is a huge plus for business travellers. However, I have had the same complaint for the last few visits. the first time I thought it was just me, but this is now my third visit... please clean your heating/ac units! The whole room smells like fierce mold every time the heat or ac comes on v(with the heat it smells like burning mold, which is even more unpleasant), and is horrible on allergies. At first I thought I simply came down with a cold, but now I'm certain that there's something growing in the filter of your ac. That's pretty gross.

Hotel was ok for the price but room felt full of moisture due to high humidity at the time. There were a couple of weddings going on and it was very noisy in corridor from 11pm till 1AM and nothing was done about it. Also one room had a dog in it that barked continuosly.

This place was a pleasant surprise, from the manager's receptions on Tuesday and Thursday, to the large refrigerator and microwave, to the free breakfast, to the excellent restaurant. Just could not say enough good about this place.

I've stayed twice at the Century House. Both times, the location, late booking date and price were significant factors. The hotel is easily at the level of all major chain hotels that charge between $100 and $150, but I have consistently booked at below $100, at the last minute (same day). The WiFi is fast enough, but the TV (HD) was flaky and I couldn't get NBC in HD (I love Saturday Night Live—had to watch it in SD). The breakfast buffet is certainly better than most, just remember to bring the card they give you at check in. One weird thing about the hotel is it is behind and below the restaurant of the same name, which was hard to find the first time I stayed there.

Attended a renewal of vows for a family member on premises and figured we would stay overnight. Very pleasant and clean accommodations . Country buffet breakfast was fantastic.

Nice motel, very friendly staff. Rooms are NOT over sized as advertised but very comfortable. QUIET was very good, as there were wedding guests and a travel sports team w/kids. Our toilet failed on the second night, there was nobody to fix it. We had to use one down the hall in public area.

Visiting a friend. First room had bugs in it. The bugs were some type of firefly or similar however, they were on the ceiling above the bed and wall adjacent to the bed and were falling down onto us. Apparently, the hotel is aware of the problem. We were moved to the second floor were no further problems were encountered. The hotel overall is nice and quaint. The desk attendent was excellant but seemed overwhelmed without any help. The second issue is that as of Tuesday funds are still held in my account in the amount of $188 as the "deposit" for additional charges however, my final bill showed no charges. I am not happy with the overall experience.
