Big rooms up to date. Nice staff.

The staff are very friendly and helpful and courteous.

I want to love this place--but I don't think I can. I like staying in unique local boutique hotels (and this would qualify as one), but this is not up to the level I am used to. The lobby is nice enough and the rooms are plenty large. The stairs and the hallways seem old--not new, not fresh.

The service was good and the rooms were nice and the shower was very big

It was great, the guy at the front desk was really helpful. Great location and free parking. The only downside was that one of the beds (room 211) had a super soft caved in mattress.

the area was perfect for graduation families. the neighborhood was untidy and trash everywhere. I am sure that had a lot to do with cleaning out the graduates

Very nice place to stay. Close to campus activities and very clean rooms

Great location, close to the college and restaurants

Location is great. Staff very friendly. Accommodations are amazing.. Especially for the price!

Room was not clean. There was half eaten pretzels along the bed skirting and what seemed like gum stuck to the floor in front of the desk. Sign that the room was NOT vacuumed. The jetted tub had ring around the tub, from not being cleaned properly. Last day here staff didn’t leave extra TP. Roll wad almost done. So my daughter had to go into their supply room and get a roll!

Nice comfortable rooms and a great location for a campus visit!

No hot tub(s) (as advertised). Entire place seemed to be in the middle of some work while we were there, and there's definitely a lot of potential!

Hotel was under construction. The information was never relayed when booking.

It is an okay hotel if you are looking for a cheaper hotel near the downtown campus. But definitely not the chic boutique hotel as advertised.

We are sorry we were not up to your expectations. The hotel itself is only 6 1/2 years old, so far from old. Thank you for your feedback though.

Glad to hear that loved the location of our hotel and that staff hospitably waived the parking fee for your stay. I was not aware of the damage to this mattress; thank you for bringing it to my attention as it will be corrected. In the future please make staff aware of any issues while you are in-house so that we can have the opportunity to make any corrections to optimize your stay. Safe Travels
