The photographer who photographed this hotel for Hotels.com was a master! The hotel and room looked amazing online. When we pulled into the parking lot, we thought we were at the wrong place. They are renovating, but we were in one of the "renovated" rooms. We pulled the comforter back for our little girls to get into bed and there... More

Overall ok place to rest your head for the night. Recently changed from a Fairfield Inn by Marriott. I would assume things were better then but maybe not. When we pulled in I had some reserves about the place. Trash littered the parking lot in places and the exterior of the building was super dated. We had purchased the room... More

The staff (front desk, breakfast) where all great. The room was very nice, away from traffic noise and not overlooking parking. We where on the main floor 123. Good king bed. Great breakfast! Fruit available, scrambled eggs and sausage, toast or waffles etc.

Placed here by travel agency for a soccer tournament. Not a good place for a large group. Common spaces are practically nonexistent. There were two other teams placed here at the same time. Not a good decision. Needs updating but staff was really nice and helpful. Appreciated that the pool was warm. Breakfast selections just ok. They were out of... More

I stayed here because I wanted to be close to the city but far away at the same time. Its a little difficult to get to but worth the travel. I stayed here with some friends and even though I arrived late, service was still courteous and welcomed. I had 2 queen beds and didn't see any problems besides them... More
