They have a hot breakfast it was great ! And my dog was welcome

Enjoyable

Location is perfect for shopping, dining and easy access to I-75, for traveling! I do recommend if traveling with smaller children, get room away from pool area. There was a large family in the pool area and walls are pretty thin. Over all, great hotel for the weekend

This hotel had been remodeled nicely and was clean. The pool and courtyard area were relaxing and enjoyable. There was a decent continental breakfast. Rooms were quiet and bed was comfortable.

Clean and spacious property. Toilet had trouble flushing. Otherwise it was a perfect stay.

Very poor-this is like a Howard Johnson but double a Howard Johnson price. not an excellent hotel as suggested by their review score of 8. I would rate it a 2.5 at best. One elevator to cater for maybe 50 rooms and they have an 8 rating??? There was dog tied up to the railing sitting on a mat outside our door with a bucket of dog food. This is not acceptable.in a hotel with an 8 rating. I had chosen this hotel as their rating said ‘fabulous. It certainly is not. Pool full of leaves! Security deposit cannot be refunded until 11am after they inspect the room. At a push they will refund at 9 if their manager is on duty then……most people want to be gone before 9am am not hanging around for an inspection. To me this indicates the type of client they expect not a 70 couple like us. Overall very unpleasant stay.

The property had some plusses, and definitely some minusses as well. The staff was friendly and effecient, and when we had an issue, were given a new room at their insistence, not ours. That was awesome. The property seems to be to large for them to maintain properly with the amount of staff they have. Worn areas, broken locks, etc...Overall, very nice, but room for improvement.

The room was nice and well-kept. Polite staff and ample parking.

There was constant traffic nearby which would be an issue if you are a light sleeper. The water didn't work in the morning and when I went to the front desk she said they had a water leak and had to shut it off. They also said because I booked through orbitz (expedia) they couldn't offer me any refund or discount.

This was an average property. Nothing unique. Pool was clean. Breakfast is standard. Room is average. Furniture is dated. Clean room. Boutique is misleading

Elijah at the front desk was awesome. He answered all my questions and made me feel welcome.

Decent place to stay for a reasonable price. Rooms were in decent shape. Pool was clean. Didn't expect the best for the price but was pleased with the stay.

Excellent staff..... Friendly and efficient. Nice rooms. Thank You

What spacious room. Felt bad taking up several parking spaces, as we were towing a car with us. But parked where they told us to.

Sean, I'm so sorry that you had a less than satisfactory stay. I'm very concerned to hear what you've explained in your review. We are a newly renovated 152 room Equestrian Boutique hotel. Our hotel has 2 elevators to accommodate our guest's needs. I would like to apologize for the guest having their dog outside. If our staff was notified, we would have reached out to the guest. We are pet friendly but we want to make sure everyone is comfortable during their stay. As for our pool, we went through a heavy wind storm that moved around a lot of debris throughout the hotel. I do apologize for the wind. Lastly, cash paying guests sign a cash deposit disclosure that states when they will be able to receive their cash upon inspection the next day. Again, sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused. We hope that you would give us another chance to make it right with you. As we are a fabulous hotel as stated in our reviews.
