I have made so many great memories there! It has changed names many times, but only recently have I seen change in the way the building is being taken care of... More

We had to stay at this hotel because all others were full in town, it was the worst experience ever. When we arrived the lobby looked nice and we knew the rooms were under construction, little did we know our room would be so bad. There were pipes hanging down from the ceiling that should not have been exposed. Our... More

Very disappointing, the entry way was in no way a representation of the room. We had a room with two queen beds. There was barely any room to get around. For the size of the room itself it should only have had one queen bed :( One of the beds was only about three feet from the heating unit so... More

Marci we appreciate your feedback during your stay. The queen rooms are meant to have 2-4 people otherwise, yes it would be a little too crowded. We have taken your feedback to Denny's so they can better serve our guests as well. More

I needed a hotel that was pet friendly. I found boarders and so happy I did. The staff was so helpful and friendly. They are presently renovating it but I had no problems at all. There is a Denny's and a Sports Lounge with pool tables and darts. It gives you something to do. I highly recommend this place.
