When I arrived on11/3 at this location to check in on a confirmed reservation made through Choice Hotels for a single room, 2 adults, I was told that only handicap accessable rooms were available. The desk clerk (eschar) blamed the mix up on Choice Hotels and was totally uncooperative in resolving the issue. Her solution was "cancel my reservation and... More

James- I am very sorry for the inconvenience regarding your stay. As I stated when you were checking in that the room that was booked was a handicap room. At no time was this changed prior to your arrival. I would have been more than happy to relocate you to another room type but we were full except for smoking... More

Margarette always keeps the breakfast area clean and puts out a variety of great breakfast food, not just cereal and bagels. The management was very... More

This is a wonderful place to stay especially if you are staying for a few days. The kitchen facilities are great, the staff is courteous, and the breakfasts were more than we expected. To top it all off the price was great.
