Football weekend, so hotel was packed. The staff was friendly. The room was fine. Typical small room with double beds and small balcony. There was no balcony furniture. There was a continental breakfast with minimum fare...toast, eggs, oj, cereal, muffins. The hotel is dated and could use an interior facelift. Plenty of parking and we could walk to two good... More

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

The room was reasonably clean, cleaner than expected for a hojo. Very helpful service. I had a package delivered and they had it waiting for me when I arrived. We asked about places to eat and a cab company to take. Pool was too warm to enjoy, and the clientele hanging around the pool was undesirable.
