Nice hotel near stores and restaurants with an in house lounge

Very nice. Property and services improving I’ve stayed there defore.

Pool and hot tub was warm and very nice The property is improving

Everyone was pleasant and friendly. Had a good stay.

Very big nice pool everything you need is on site...

My family and I spent the night and were disappointed to see that the hotel was not nearly as presentable as the photos online. The room smelled like stale smoke when we finally found it in the maze-type building. When we went to the pool/hot tub, there were not any clean towels and the pool was so over chlorinated that it made our eyes burn. The pool temperature was cooler than expected as well. In the morning, housekeeping staff was not friendly when greeted, the potatoes at the breakfast were hard as a rock, and the toaster kept shorting out. When we got home from this trip, my sister and I had to go to the doctor due to an infected rash from being in the hot tub. Not satisfied with this stay at all.

Little bit old...otherwise pretty good. Breakfast and service are good too.

Enjoyed it and would go again hot tub was great with a snow storm out side and everything was easy to get to

Was there for 3 nights. Never saw room services. Lock did not work on my door, reported it to front desk, they said it would be taken care of. Never happened. Had to keep my valuables locked in my car. Very disappointed.

Very nice hotel ! Would definitely stay there again.

Hot tub cold again It’s often out of service

We booked for 3 adults and 1 child but had only two sets of towels and one roll of toilet paper. When we called the front desk,they informed us we had to come to the lobby and get it for ourselves. We stayed two days but nothing was cleaned after day one except just making the beds. Also while watching the Pirate game Friday a mouse ran across the floor.

We really enjoyed our stay. Room was spacious and bed was comfortable. I got the room with the jetted tub, which was enjoyable except for the dust coming out of the lint trap. All in all a great stay.
