The hotel was clean. The heat didn't work and the road noise was very loud.

Friendly and helpful staff. I needed som hair spray and hair gel, so the driver took me to Walgreens.

Its always been nice. Its clean and well kept. Thats about all I have to say at this time.

Centrally located and clean rooms. Food was excellent at the bar.

Too close to I325. Very noisy until late at night.

I had a beautiful room with an excellent view. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. I felt at this price point a free breakfast should be included.

Very nice hotel, friendly staff, clean rooms. The free shuttle they offer was a huge plus.

Its close to downtown and Drake. They are super friendly. No free breakfast. Being close to the hospital does create some middle of the night sirens.

Location for the price was good. Toilet wouldn’t stop running without jiggling and futzing with it. Air con didn’t work. Wouldn’t only pump out heat. Had to open the window to keep it cool in the room. Wasn’t worth notifying staff as were only there for a quick sleep overnight.

We came for the basketball tournament and had a blast. We were able to check in early and they upgraded our room b/c the type we reserved were not available. They put us in a king suite at no charge!! If I had a negative, it is that the bed was really hard so I didn’t sleep well. Everything else was really nice. Another positive.... we are within walking distance of the arena and downtown bars!

Very clean, great staff, surprisingly good food in the hotel restaurant. I will be back.

Even though it was a very busy weekend, they accommodated us allowing us to check in early. Very very friendly check in wonderful cleaning and maintenance staff. Captain Don and his shuttle provided us with great transportation.

We were pleasantly surprised with the modern and clean rooms. Very helpful staff, and very knowledgeable shuttle van driver who picked us up at the airport and pointed out the points of interest on the way to the hotel. Our group was there for 3 nights, when a group of "Animee" convention kids moved in. On the night before our very early morning flight out, SOMEONE thought it would be funny to set off the fire alarm! We all had to leave the building via the fire escape stairs. It was a false alarm, but was still most annoying. I wished one of the hotel staff had made a point of letting us know what was going on throughout the episode. But no one came out to let the guests know that it was a false alarm. Just a weird experience.
