4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

Nothing special here. Everything was good, but nothing was fantastic. The layout of the hotel is kind of cool and the pool is really nice, and big. I think the elevator was last updated in 1950--I was nervous I'd get stuck in it every time I used it. Staff was awesome and friendly. Breakfast was average. I'd stay here again

We stayed here for the first time at the end of June and were very pleased with the service and accommodations. Specifically, Maya at the front desk was very helpful and courteous to help us with our questions.

Not a fancy hotel but clean and comfortable with decent rates. It's along a gorgeous river walk that goes for miles. Great if you are traveling with a dog or children. Go left on the river walk and there's a beautiful playground, splash pad and grassy area about 0.5 mi from the parking lot of the hotel. Maya checked us... More

We stayed 4 nights and were kept up all night each night by a loud gang of young people drinking, lighting fireworks, etc. right outside the entrance door. In fact, they had the door propped open with a floor mat to come and go as they pleased. The staff seemed to allow this even when they were lighting fireworks off... More

Everything went smoothly from check-in to check-out. Shower drained slowly and shower diverter was semi faulty, but we didn't find it enough of an issue to report it. I'm sure they would have corrected it if we had done so. Staff always seemed friendly and reactive. I've stayed in other hotels in Farmington and this hotel rates well compared to... More

We had a pleasant one night stay here. The room was comfortable and quiet and the a/c worked well (although other people there apparently had to switch rooms due to lack of adequate a/c.) The hotel is old, and can use some updating. The hot breakfast was very good. A short walk out the back doors will bring you to... More

I've been looking for the perfect getaway from work. It seems properties in town are either costly or cheap, this one seemed fair but for the price I'd pay $15 more for a newer property. The staff was nice. They have that. As mentioned previously, the place is in need of updating and I know they know this. My "suite"... More
