The lady at the front desk couldn't find our reservation when we went to check in. This really upset us because we had planned a b-day party a... More

Dear Michelle E, It has been a great pleasure corresponding with you via e-mail over the past few days. I'm glad we were able to determine that the issue with the water pressure was a simple matter of changing the setting from mist to shower and we'll be working to do a better job of educating our guests about these...

We were staying at the hotel for a state hockey tournament. We tried to have a cocktail at the pool while watching our kids swim. We were asked to leave due to a pan of bars and few drinks sitting at our table. However, the hotel had a minimum of two vending machines sitting in the pool area. I think... More

Dear Jrieff, Thank-you so very much for choosing to stay with us.

Very Nice hotel, little bit on the expensive side. The hotel is up to date and is very clean! Has a lot of accommodations, Although it would be nice if the rooms had fridges. Very friendly staff and has a nice bar area.

A friend and I stayed here for a night to visit some other friends in town. The room was nice and clean and was fairly up to date. The bathroom looked almost brand new! The best part of the stay is the Minerva's restaurant (unless you have kids, then of course it is the pool, which looked very nice/fun also).... More

Don't stay in the bi-level suite if you have a family! It only has a king sized bed and the couches are not even sofa-sleepers. The living room furniture only will seat 3 people! I guess this suite is meant only as a honeymoon suite. Too bad! It would be perfect for a large family if it had more beds... More

I've HEARD that they have recently done some renovations, but there is still work to be done. While the price was good, there are several options in Aberdeen and for the few I've stayed at I have only had one time where I would say more attention to detail was needed. We found 2 beer bottle caps in our room... More
