I stayed here a few months ago. The look of the hotel and its surroundings are nice and well kept, hotel is clean with a spacious lobby and pleasent staff. I had a long stay here, my room was clean with a king sized bed which was very comfortable. They have a lovely courtyard in the back, an indoor pool... More

We had a clean and comfortable room and I enjoyed the grounds including a gazebo, where I drank my coffee and read, within their courtyard, nice lobby, separate comfortable seating area, and an indoor pool and hot tub. If you book through a discount site breakfast isn't included, which wasn't disclosed to me before booking, but the additional cost for... More

This hotel was recommend by some local people. On first sight it appeared to be your usual mid-range chain hotel. The lobby and breakfast area were clean and nicely decorated. The staff were polite, but not overly friendly. They seemed overwhelmed with reservations and short staffed. Now for the good the bad and the ugly - The Good - The... More

Really nice place, you can tell that 10-15 years ago it was the best place to stay within hundreds of miles. Very nice set up, still very elegant and fancy. Price was super reasonable. 4 1/2 rating out of 5 based on room, hotel and price. Don L

I drove in from Las Vegas.. Super tired. The beds you just fall into. The staff was very friendly and I enjoyed my nights rest. Breakfast is not included.. 5.99 each... Didn't have breakfast just wanted to get on the road. Will stay here again for sure

Look, this is 2015 and everyone has multiple gadgets to plug in and charge but in my room there was not a single free plug except in the bathroom. The windows are very old and aluminum framed and the lock mechanism wore out. This is not good on the ground floor where the window is easily accessible from the sidewalk.

I stayed at this hotel for a business trip and was overall pleased with my stay. The hotel was reasonable clean and quite and the staff were friendly and accommodating. It certainly did the trick for a quick work trip!

I spent three nights here for a conference so I was at the hotel a lot. The hotel was clean and the housekeeping staff was excellent. I was unimpressed with the bartender in the hotel bar and the front desk service was just okay. Rooms were great and the conference food was good. The biggest downside, and I was completely... More

On the positive side it is convenient to the freeway, has a place to park a truck and trailer (primarily because no one stayed there Sunday night) is right next to a gas station and Jack in the Box. On the negative side the pillows are hard, there is no light switch when you enter the room so I had... More

We attended a three-day Convention for a fraternal organization. Our room was spacious and clean, with a comfortable king-sized bed, microwave oven, an amply-sized refrigerator, and coffee service. A modest free buffet breakfast was provided for the 150 Convention attendees. The convention rooms were spacious enough for our gathering, were ready on time, and the meals were served efficiently. Clearly,... More
