The only thing this hotel has going for it, is the location. The room smelled musty and unclean. Our toilet leaked so bad we had to keep putting towels down and had to step around soaking towels the whole weekend. The front desk said there was nothing they could do because they had no maintenance there or on call. How do you not have maintenance for a fully booked hotel on a busy weekend? The front desk person just gave us more towels to put down. Terrible. Our coffee maker was missing the pull out tray so we could not make coffee. They did give us a new coffee maker the next day. All in all, I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

Very quiet room and the hotel was in walking distance to downtown restaurants, bars and stores.

Convenient to downtown. Clean, well appointed rooms. Pool was nice.

Staff was great, other guests were not. Loud and drunk behavior in a college town is expected, but 530am screaming and hallway altercations is too much. Hire a guard or raise your prices. Only picked this location because of the pool and it was gross. We left at 6am, not worth staying to check out.

Staff was very helpful and friendly.

It was quiet calm

This property is in a good downtown area with walking to many restaurants. The rooms have been renovated and are very modern with all the amenities. Nice bathroom with large shower.

It was nice and clean. There was a random rag on the floor when we got there. Overall very nice and comfy.

Excellent experience with front desk. Clean and neat rooms.

Double charge for room and not checking for pre paid conformation .

The rooms are no frills, but are comfortable, and the staff is generally friendly with a few exceptions.

Slept great and enjoyed being so close that you could walk downtown. Would definitely stay here again. Did enjoy the breakfast buffet, but hear they will soon be re-doing it to a more expensive cafe style.

Close enough to walk downtown. Clean.
