We stayed here for wedding. The best thing was that the staff accommodated us to check in by 1:30 pm so that we could get ready. The shuttle bus was picking us up at 3:00 pm so it gave us time to get settled and get dressed. It was also nice to have breakfast included in the morning. We met... More

For our normal hotel in the area, we use a Holiday Inn Express. But it was full and this is our back-up hotel. We were thinking of making this our company hotel at one point, but I'm glad we didn't now. As usual, the staff was good,even the overnight clerk when I arrived at 230am. The bed was fine, but...

This was the worst experience ever. Reservation process (done directly with the hotel) was a mess required multiple calls. The room was the smallest I have ever seen. Everything through out the hotel was very dated. Rugs were worn bare, through out the hotel. The bed was awful, you could feel the bed springs through the mattress and I suspect... More

Overall the hotel showed old and the wireless internet connection was spotty at best. The restaurant leaves a bit to be desired as well. The requested well done burger was served to me rare. Overall though the bed was comfortable, location convenient, and the pool clean.

My stay was just fine. From outward appearances, it's a bit dated. But the room was clean, the bed comfortable. Yes there are a few signs of wear here and there. If you're not fussy about such things, you'll do just fine. Other than finding the AC unit was leaking, I don't recall anything too bad about this place. The... More

We found this hotel through the Altamont Manor's recommended hotels. We arrived at the hotel and checked in with no problems. We stayed on the third floor and had no issues with noise. The bed was comfortable, and the shower had really good pressure. So the room was nice. My wife took advantage of the fitness center in the morning... More

We were impressed by the staff on the front desk. Bobby was very cheerful and helpful. Our room was fine. We liked the fact that we had a fridge in the room. The room was clean and decor was acceptable even though It is an older hotel. The main restaurant/bar where we ate dinner had a musty smell but the... More
