My college roommate and I stayed here the weekend of Sept.12-14, 2014 and we could not have been more pleased. The front desk was extremely helpful, we asked for and got a peaceful room on the 2nd floor away from the traffic noise and at the other end of the hall than the ice machine. Our room was wonderful, and... More

Excellent hotel with very friendly staff. I stay at this hotel every time I visit my son who attends Baker University. When I checked in, I requested to stay an additional night, the manager on duty went out of her way to accommodate me. She was very nice. Will at the front desk, and Tay in housekeeping were super! Great... More

My stay was pleasant, and I have zero complaint about my room. It was spacious and had all the stuff you would need. Price was also fair. It was a clean room, and the other areas of the hotel also seem to be kept well. My only complaint is that the walls are really thin. I could hear every footstep... More

there was good and bad. The bad was that upon late arrival we found a large group of construction workers drinking in the parking lot. There were two of the workers urinating between the cars as we pulled up. We mentioned it to the night staff and they acted like this was not the first time. It just was not... More

I'm very happy with our stay here. Very pleasant staff at the front desk and the gal working in the breakfast area was FANTASTIC!
