The hotel is a very low quality hotel. I am sure in it's day it would have been a nice hotel. Has not been kept up and the hotel is run down. The rate is reasonable and that is the only thing to like. I would find newer hotels in the area to stay at.

I stayed here after getting a groupon detail at half price. The hotel is a bit out of the way from downtown but for the price, definitely worth it. The room was nice, staff was friendly, everything worked as expected. I didn't get a chance to utilize the outdoor trails but the treadmills, etc. inside were of good quality and... More

I have to agree with a number of the reviews. Front desk and reception personnel quite friendly and helpful. Why there's such a disconnect between that experience and housekeeping is unfortunate and bewildering. I didn't check the bathroom in my first room until morning. Lesson learned. Of the many hotels I stay at during the year the shower enclosure had... More

The hot tub was out of order, then when it was working again the jets didn't work. I wish I would have taken a picture, but the bottom of the hot tub is stained brown.. not attractive at all. Even if the hot tub would have been working we probably wouldn't have got in because it just looked gross. The... More

We reserved this room through another site because there was a great deal available. Although it's not the hotel's fault, it was difficult to get to it's location. We had a king-sized bed reserved and the room size was very nice, but the bathroom was very small. We are tall people (5'11" & 6'3") and the shower was very low;... More

Great greeting when I checked into my room at this hotel. I met some friends at the small lobby bar and that was nice. Even our room was fairly nice amidst some really bad engineering (hardly any outlets-which they remedied with an outlet strip). The bathroom was pretty good too. So I thought this would be a good stay. But... More
