Person who checked us in was not helpful. He did not meet my request to have a room in the middle of the hall away from elevator. He did not informed us about breakfast process nor did he provide breakfast coupons for our paid in advance breakfast. Did not even indicate which way was the elevator located...I guess assuming we already knew everything. He was not welcoming or serviceable.

The room was on the side of the interstate. The road traffic noise was constant.

Everything was done well. The only thing I missed was a make-up remover towelette.

Dated and very loud on the highway side. It was under construction in the lobby area and the bar wasn’t open late. No opportunity to purchase snacks or breakfast items to go.

Great location, service and excellent food. Very helpfull staff

A nice place with a gym and pool. Our bathroom had a wheelchair accessible shower that did not drain right so our whole bathroom floor kept getting wet, hope they fix that!

Convenient location. Easy access. Could use more parking though

Friendly staff, fresh baked cookies after 5pm, and flexibility with check in time made this a great stay.

The staff was very friendly and personable. I had forgotten an opener for a bottle of wine I purchased after arriving in town. I went to the bar to see if I could borrow one. The server, Lena, was so helpful and went out of her way to not only open the wine but to get a wine glass and pour the first glass for me. I was very impressed. The hotel was nice but the staff made it very pleasant. Thank you.

The staff is absolutely the best, friendly and accommodating, eager to help and give travel advice. The shuttle driver, Michael, went above and beyond at every opportunity and deserves special thanks. The rooms are clean, nicely decorated, spacious, and comfortable. The mattress has adjustable firmness, which made a huge difference. The temperature control wasn't the best (the room was either too hot or too cold due to the thermostat placed too far from the wall unit), but everything else was great. The gym and hot-tub are nice, but the pool is quite small (don't plan on swimming laps). Overall, a fantastic hotel and worth a recommendation.

The experience was great. Very friendly staff. And the remodeled bathroom is really nice.

Awesome staff, warm, friendly and welcoming right off the bat, and through the entire weekend

Very nice, clean, and accommodating. Breakfast is not free and a little pricey, but may be the economy there.

Nice, clean, friendly staff. Great tasting food at the restaurant. A+

Staff was always friendly and inviting, very clean and comfortable throughout.

It's a great hotel but way too close to the freeway. They really need to try and find some way to reduce the noise.

This is a great hotel. Friendly staff, and Excellent breakfast! But don't get a room facing the toll road - or bring earplugs. a little noisy.
