Did like the breakfast options

Good breakfast. Clean facility. Great location. Pleasant stay.

There was what looked to be feces on the bathroom door, the room wasn’t swept or wiped down, and the overall look and feel of cleanliness was under par with dust. The pool room is also quite hot, over chlorinated, and there is condensation dripping everywhere. It was not tolerable for our kids who were super excited to swim.

We like the proximity to the events center

This is a lot better since the last time I stayed here.

The location, it was near the parking garage to catch the shuttle bus to the State Fair. We also enjoyed the River walk and view. Breakfast was good, had many choices.

There was a moderate drip in the bathroom under the toilet...I had to put extra towels down (5 ) so our bathroom floor wouldn't flood. The whirlpool was closed. When I called to ask about the $50 being processed for incidentals after our stay the receptionist was rude.

Great view whether you were facing the river or not.

Hotel was very close to Wells Fargo which made getting to and from events easy.

Love the location and easy access to Wells Fargo. Breakfast was good, parking was easy, rooms were updated and staff was helpful. My only complaint is the noise. We could hear everything from the room next door through the adjoining door - it was almost as though we were in the same room. Awkward. There was a lot of noise in the hallway after midnight that came right through the door as well. Soundproofing would be a great update to make!

Convenient location to Wells Fargo Arena. Super friendly staff. Very accommodating.

We were able to walk everywhere, The staff was nice especially the lady who served us breakfast, everyday she did it wit a smile and greeted us with good morning! This meant a lot! She was there Saturday and Sunday Morning! Great job!

The property was clean and was centrally located to my location.

Property was excellent and all staff were friendly, professional and helpful. We made sure they heard from us before we left.

The beds were super comfortable. The staff that checked us in was not friendly or welcoming. No ice machine on the floor that we were on.

There is no Whirlpool in our pool area, And we have had the pool opened daily. We also do not charge 50.00 for Incidentals at check in, I am unsure if this was directed at another hotel?
