Recent guest reviews

i live the convenience of having a restaurant right in the hotel Great breakfast! Excellent service! All staff are friendly. Location is also great!!!

Friendly staff, comfortable rooms, convenient location, reasonably-priced. Highly recommended.

I am actually quite pleased with my stay at this hotel. It was a little on the cheaper side so i was expecting it to be a little run down but it wasn't! The hotel staff was very nice and the lobby was nice as well. There was a bar/restaurant in the lobby area along with a pool. The rooms were extremely clean and tidy and they actually looked nice! The bed was SUPER comfortable. Probably one of the most comfortable mattresses I've slept on even compared to more expensive hotels i've stayed at. It felt like a tempur-pedic mattress although im not sure if it was. The bathroom had a bowl sink that looked fancy. The only complaint i would have is about the tub in my room. The water wasn't draining properly and it would puddle while you're showering. But I'm sure that was probably just my room and not all the others. Overall I would recommend this hotel! It is in a great location next to lots of shops and restaurants.

nice beds comfortable stay great breakfast buffet

Decent hotel except our shower curtain was broken, the WiFi in our room was awful, but the breakfast was great!!!

Pros: BREAKFAST--buffet w/made to order omelets. Incredible value. BED--very comfortable INTERNET--fast, worked well CLEAN--very LAUNDRY on 2nd floor Cons: Room-- *The first room we were given on ground floor had an off smell. Like a pet store. Thought this was a no-pets-allowed facility but later spotted a large dog in a hallway on the 2nd floor. Maybe it was just passing through? *The second room we were given was good. Except be aware that you may be given a room like ours that overlooks the atrium where breakfast is served. While surprisingly quiet, you will smell breakfast at a very early hour. *Elevator service--there is none. Be aware that you may be given a room on the 2nd floor & you will need to haul your luggage up there yourself. Porter service was offered but not enthusiastically. So we lugged it ourselves. *Pool--water looked cloudy so we didn't go in. *Shower/bathroom--the handheld shower was usable but basically like standing under the kitchen faucet, with very low water pressure. And the temperature fluctuated between very cold & very hot, if someone flushed or used water in neighboring rooms. Something to be aware of especially for children. Also weird was that the towel rack was actually inside the shower. While the towels didn't actually get wet bc the water pressure was low, it was a weird place to keep towels. Bath sink was pretty but glass & no place to put stuff. Micro/coffee is inconveniently in bath area, better to put in living area w/fridge.

It was nice the staff was very willing to help in anyway I would come back here

Very friendly staff! Loved our stay. The kids loved the pool our only complaint was the pool was very dark in the evening and very hard to keep eye on the kids in the water. Other parents were concerned as well. We would most defiantly come stay with your hotel again.

Amazing stuff, made us feel welcomed and cared for. The lobby reminded very nice indoor water park in the mountain resort we visited once. The free breakfast had a lot of choices. We stayed 2 days and chose to have dinner in the lobby restaurant both nights. The room was clean and comfortable, but the fan/AC was noisy, unfortunately. Overall, it was very pleasant stay.

Cleaning lady was excellsnt and friendly . Helped out and did a very good job .

We have a special needs daughter and assumed they had an elevator. We were wrong and the 1st night we have to carry her and all her supplies up 2 flights. Not an easy task. Thankful we got moved the following day but no mention online of lack of elevator and it should be listed.

I really enjoyed our room and the staffs were very friendly. The pool however looks very dirty. It appeared as if it was not cleaned for a very long time. My kids were very excited to use the pool but after seeing the condition, they didn't dare to use it. The furnitures in the lobby looks old and worn out. Happy hour food was a joke. We ordered nacho and chicken wings and they were disgusting. I really feel bad writing this but i hope the management will take this as constructive criticism.

We had a great stay with 3 kids. Friendly staff. Nice indoor pool w/water toys :)

Good amenities and awesome breakfast included. Very nice lobby.

Clean, but old, uncomfortable mattresses. Nice lobby.

Stay was very comfortable. Liked the free breakfast. Restaurant was reasonably okay for dinner.

Old hotel but they are updating. Great breakfast buffet. Very helpful and friendly staff

The hotel is a bit older and the rooms have new and old amenities. For example, the rooms have a nice updated tv's but, they have an antiquated air conditioner/heater system. The room furniture is nice looking but the desk was wobbly and unsafe in my opinion. So for a short stay-yeah it's fine, but if I was in the area for a week or more I'd find and updated modern hotel.

Well I decided to book this hotel because of its four star rating. Everything went smooth as far as check in. I entered my room and decided to shower. While showering I look up and see an air vent caked with dust. I spoke to the supervisor which was Tiffany. She was nice enough to upgrade me to a new room. At this point I go to my new room and shower and find hair stuck on the walls of the shower. Disgusting. All in all I learned my lesson. I will only book big chain hotels with five star rating.

staff was friendly and helpful whenever needed at the front desk to the morning buffet and evening restaurant. Thanks again! some tree branches rubbing on the window were promptly trimmed away in the evening and they had a cord for my wife to hook her lap top up to the tv in the room even though she forgot it at home. great service!
