Hotel is getting older. I stayed at same hotel two nights in a row but different rooms. There was no consistency with where shampoo was kept, soaps, towels etc. art work was no fastened to the wall, the plant that was supposed to be on the shelf had been busted off so it was sitting on the floor. Product is showing signs of tiredness.

Evening front desk (tall thin guy with blondish hair) has no energy and is not friendly. I don’t think he’s in the right position and I think he may hate his job. Elderly woman in the mornings was VERY friendly and she needs recognized.

Clean and comfortable with everything you need. The breakfast bar was nice and you could order and get a hot breakfast in just minutes. The staff was great.

Wow! What a wonderful room!!

Very clean. Room was spacious with everything I needed. Very friendly staff.

Very comfortable, clean and tastefully decorated. Will stay there again.

staff was friendly! property was neat and tidy. food is delicious!!

This hotel was recommended by a bike trail website (but oddly the staff did not know about the trail...) Everything in the hotel was great, especially the breakfast. It’s not free, but it was definitely worth it compared to the typical hotel breakfast. Rooms are clean, comfortable and nice. The elevators are quick but they make odd, unexpected noises. If you’re going to the High Trestle Trail, know that you’re at the eastern end of it. The bridge is 21.5 miles to the west.

The worst thing of the experience is that this filed is mandatory

Small pool and thin walls, but overall a pleasant stay.

We had an A+ stay! Staff was friendly, and room was quiet. I have never slept in a more comfortable bed in a hotel. The lobby was beautiful with a fireplace and lots of seating. Only wish we would have had time to lounge around there. Very easy to adjust thermostat in the room.

Staff was very friendly. Everything was very good except the vending machine was completely out of water and 2 brands of soda.

My room was very comfortable and clean with a relaxing modern atmosphere. Although there is no restaurant, the lobby snack bar offered everything I needed.

Nothing remarkable. Room arrangement was odd and cramped. Staff was exceptional, though.

Staff was very courteous, great price and location

it was perfect for a quick overnight business trip.

The room was very nice but AC was too cold & when we tried to adjust it warmer it kicked in heat. Not clear instructions on how to adjust the AC. Needless to say we didn't sleep that well in a warm room,but the kicker was the college guys two doors down who slammed their door repeatedly from 11:30 pm til after 1:00 am. They left their beer bottles litering the parking lot so obviously the staff wasn't aware of the partying!

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience with us. We appreciate your feedback. We like all feedback from our guest. Its reviews like this that help us understand where our areas of opportunity are. We take our guest feedback very serious. We have been working with our team and supply venders as hard as we can to get our normal products back to a regular consistency in each room as it was a bit of a challenge during the pandemic. Stocks were running lower than normal. However, things have been looking up and products are increasing back to more of a normal routine. Maintenance has been working on different areas of the hotel to keep everything in working order and to keep it looking great. We hope you give us another chance if you travel through the area again. Once again thank you for taking the time to share your feedback.
