The hotel was not up to the country inn standard. This property was very poorly maintained and was needing total rehab. Everything was tired and shop worn. The breakfast was not as good as compared to other Country Inn suites I have stayed in in the past.

The staff was oblivious to people smoking at the end of the hall and in the adjacent non-smoking rooms. They also had no idea that doors were slamming and people were loud and abnoxious at 3:00 in the morning.

We choose this hotel in part because I knew that they offered hot breakfast (other than waffles) and an array of other breakfast/snacks that keep us full for our day outings. My one issue was on Saturday morning at breakfast I noticed this lady come into the breakfast area as if she came in just to check what was being... More

Our room was nice and clean and we were greeted with fresh baked cookies and fruit. Nice touch. The breakfast was ok but the selection was less than other Country Inn and Suites that I have stayed in. BUT, the internet access was terrible. My iPad which was wireless constantly quit randomly and you never knew when it would start... More

This hotel was fine. Nothing remarkable. The staff was great, however, and very helpful with dinner advice. There were laundry services available which was very much needed and the breakfast was nicely done. It was clean but dated. There were a LOT of trains, but they didn't blow horns all night so it was OK.

Nothing disappointed me about the stay, but nothing made the stay very memorable either. Everything was satisfactory, but nothing that would cause me to return to this hotel if I were in the area again.

We very much appreciated the reasonable rate they charged. We were in town to run the Dick Beardsley races, and other hotels were much higher in price. The decor and the TV in the hotel was a little dated, but we would much rather have that and a lower price on our room than having everything trendy and be more... More

The hotel Staff and manager were very pleasant and helpful. Always greeted guests. The continental breakfast was very nice and they replenished items. I would recommend this hotel and will stay there again.
