They have a special rate if you are visiting the college or students at the college. You have to call for the rate. We were visiting at off-season and the hotel was very quiet. Staff is very friendly.

Price is good and close enough to walk to eat. Downtown is just a hair over a mile away. You are well with in walking distance to about 20 places to eat and drink. It's close to the freeway for easy access but far enough away to have no noise.

First of all, considering the price of the room, I found this to be a very decent hotel.

There is plenty of parking. Staff was... More

The apperance of this hotel is less appealing than the other BW hotels. It's not too well-kept or attractive when compare to others of the same chain. Spots on rug need to be shampooed once a while. Everything else is average.

The staff was cordial. Everything worked, the room was quiet and clean. No complaints. I would definitely stay here again. The location was convenient to restaurants and highway. At this point, I'm just trying to use 200 words so that I can post this review. I'm not that long winded.

Excellent place to stay, room was clean, internet was great, staff is friendly. Located on a quiet street away from the busy downtown. Easy to get on and off of the highway. Pool was not heated, however the hot tub was cozy.

Stopped here overnight on the way to a local interview. The Inn is an older style motel where you drive up to your room, park your car and go right in. All hallways are exterior only. The Inn has a pool but I wasn't about to use it when the overnight temperature dropped into the 40's. The room was a... More
