Checked in, went to room (#900), found room with foul sewage smell, found bathtub filled with fecal matter, 5gal pail with plunger, so obviously someone knew of issue and had been working on it. Went back to desk, got new room, #703, no toiletries in this room. Had to go back to desk to pick up what was needed. Desk personnel couldn't have been nicer and more apologetic. Rest of stay was uneventful. Location couldn't have been better to attend show at Kroger center.

I enjoyed my stay.

The only thing i didn't like was Saturday night there was quite a bit of street racing going on on the same street the hotel was located, and no apparent attempt to alert the police. This went on until around midnight.

The staff was friendly and very professional!! The rooms were very clean to my liking and I had a good sleep with no disturbance .

The room was very under whelming. The feont night desk clerk the younger woman was rude. Just was not worth the almost 200 we apent for 1 night..

The staff is always excellent, that’s a great thing and keeps me coming back.

Everything was nice. I’m trying to figure out how you don’t have microwaves in the rooms. That was lame to me to have to go downstairs and warm up breakfast. Besides that, everything else was good.

The convenience and location in town. The way the room was laid out.

Very clean and location was great. Could walk to restaurants and the university

Ben is great shuttles ya everywhere wonderful place. Friendly helpful service

Apologies for the inconvenience. We do not have microwaves in all rooms but whenever travels bring you back please feel free to reach out to our front desk to request one as we do have spares available for our long term stay guests. We would be more than happy to deliver one to your room if available.
