We had a wonderful experience at this hotel. It certainly is a vintage property, from the accordion-style front doors (something I haven't seen since the 1990's!), to the lack of a lick of ADA signage, meaning the hotel hasn't been renovated in at least 20 years. But the hot tub was HOT (thank you!), and the staff attentive. The breakfast... More

In my 56 years, I have stayed at many, many hotels for business as well as for pleasure and I have to say that this was one of, if not the BEST experiences I have ever had in hotel accomodations- Seriously! One might think that I am reviewing a Hyatt, Westin or other "exclusive", high buck hotel (all of which... More

We arrived on a Saturday. The hotel was busy with a wedding. We had an average uneventful check in. We were told we were upgraded to the 6 floor. In the room that evening I didn't get hot water. (Hardly warm) The walls were not adequate to block out the sound from the next room. On Sunday we were not... More

The hotel was certainly adequate, and the lobby was quite nice. However, the room seemed tired and in need of a facelift. Further, the eggs at breakfast were rubbery and tasted odd enough that none of the 4 of us in our family would eat them. Clean room - fine -- but probably would not return.

American Airlines paid for this stay so I was a bit worried that it wouldn't be a good one. I was pleasantly surprised by the staff and room accommodations. They were more than adequate and everything was clean. The free continental breakfast was a surprise too. There were hot scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, french toast, cereals, muffins, bagels, juices, milk... More

All the potential for a nice hotel but certainly showing its age. The room had an apartment sized refrigerator and microwave which was nice. Also the room was clean but again, showing its age. the cleaning staff had the AC turned down to 63 when I arrived. A bit too chilly for me and not to energy efficient. Especially with... More

I was a little nervous after reading the reviews on this hotel, but I was very pleasantly surprised. The rooms were clean and the carpet looked brand new. We must have had an updated room. The staff was very helpful and gave the kids cookies when we arrived. Very happy with this hotel!

Very clean, super friendly staff. Older hotel but seems well maintained. Bar relaxing, pizza very good. Comfortable room with powerful a/c unit. Really good breakfast in nice dining room. Wifi worked great. Wonderful deal for the price :)

The hotel is not as nice as it used to be...however, breakfast was hot and fresh and staff was friendly. Our room was clean and there were cookies waiting in the lobby when we got there. The staff was friendly. We left something in our hotel room and one of the housekeepers ran out into the parking lot to catch... More

We were in town for a wedding and there was a block for rooms reserved here. We basically only slept here and found it to be adequate. We did not eat here or use any amenities. I felt I got my money's worth.
