The hotel's rooms are clean and the staff was very friendly. However, the breakfast left a lot to be desired. Bananas were the only fruit, the yogurt was warm and the line was long because, no one directed guests where to stand to get the fresh made pancakes. Also, when food ran out the staff took a long time to... More

I stayed here because my daughters and I needed a getaway. The both do housekeeping, so when we first walked in the room, they gave it a once over and were really pleased with the cleanliness. They looked at the comforters and realized they had sheets on them. NICE TOUCH!!! It was very comforting to know that top sheet gets... More

Clean, large room. Super large bathroom and an extra sink and counter in the room. The pool looks amazing although I'd didn't get to use it. My fault. Very good breakfast selection. Easy access to the highway. Lots of dining choices nearby. This is a very friendly place. I'd recommend it.

The room was nice and spacious, but what we appreciated the most was that in addition to the normal bathroom with tub shower, toilet, and a lavatory in a long granite counter, there was also another sink in a long granite counter outside the bathroom. This made it very easy for my wife and me to get ready in the... More

The hotel is very clean, the beds we're comfortable, the staff was friendly, we did have an issue with the toilet not flushing correctly and had to be fixed twice. The breakfast was a decent variety and the meat and eggs were seperated well so being a gluten free customer, I was able to enjoy a few things. Unfortunately the... More

I enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable and I really liked the additional sink outside the bathroom complete with microwave and mini fridge. I was concerned at first because my room was right next to the stairs and I thought it would be noisy, but I didn't hear a thing. The breakfast... More

Let me preface this by saying that there's a seminar/convention going on here right now so I'm sure that has added to the loudness. We're currently on the 2nd floor and we're from well out of town and from the looks of things this hotel was the nicest one we could find. My husband is up here to take an... More

Very nice hotel. No business center. Breakfast was nice and abundant. The hotel was noisy due to travelers with unsupervised children and high school kids staying in the hotel. The hotel was conveniently located to all local restaurants and malls. The main highway was very conveniently nearby. The town center was quaint and very clean. I would consider staying again...

We have stayed at this property annually for the last 5 years. Think my last review was something like "almost outstanding". Well folks, this year you ARE OUTSTANDING! Spotlessly clean room with new carpet. Loved having one sink in the main area with the microwave and fridge, and a separate full bathroom. Made getting ready so much quicker. Beds and... More
