The hotel is on par for the grade....nothing fancy. Rooms were clean, but overall a little dated. The location is very handy to the freeway, which helps if you are traveling through. Disappointed with the breakfast, not good. Not many complaints, except unreliable tv and leaky bathroom fixture. Overall, so-so experience and nothing to rave about.

Close to the interstate. Very clean and comfortable rooms. Excellent power shower. Modern flat screen TV. Easy to access wifi. My room was in the rear of the hotel and very quiet. Friendly staff.

This hotel is just off the highway at exit 2, easy to reach and close to most area businesses as well. We attended a wedding and were there two nights. The staff was very friendly and welcoming, the hotel looks like a fairly recent renovation has taken place. Free coffee and newspapers and a comfortable room at a reasonable rate... More

We stayed here one night for a wedding. Several minutes after getting into my room the door was opened by another hotel guest who had apparently been assigned to the same room. So that was a first. The facilities were nice enough but I felt the price ($150) was awfully steep for the location and the quality of the hotel.... More

This hotel is old - not sure when it was built but, the ceilings are low, the smell is "must" and the technology is decorative rather than functional. Let's start with the elevators. Slow and the interior is retro but not in a good way. When you do manage to get to the floor you selected, you find more retro... More

We stayed here the night before closing on our new home. The old one was already empty. This hotel was excellent. Clean room, quiet (despite being near Rt93) comfortable and we got a good night's sleep. The breakfast, with table service, was very, very good. Highly recommended.
