Very good option to stay if you want to save money, the room was clean, no problems with the wifi and friendly staff. The things we didn't like was that smoke smell in the elevator and the ice machine seems that was not working, but it was a great place to stay

Stayed here because it was "cheaper". We booked 3 months in advance. Showed up, the computers were down, one hostess, she was on the phone. Finally got checked in. Carpet on floor is loose, you have to program the tv for it to work. Fresh blood stains in the vanity area splattered on the wall. Insects in the room...spiders. Best... More

Strange, after reading the review below because I left the hotel yesterday and none of these issues were fixed. My wife and I came for our first 2 day vacation away from the kids in years and were looking forward to relaxing by the pool and sitting in the sauna. Both were not heated. The hot tub was downright temped... More

I wont lie, it was a nice and clean hotel. The staff was not rude, they were pretty friendly. However, not everything worked! Elevator did not work to well. I was on the 3rd floor and I would rather use the stairs. Vending machine, soda machine, ice machine, laundry dryer and of course the Pool was all OUT OF ORDER!!... More

The room is clean and comes with the freebies you expect but sometimes have to pay extra for. Parking, HBO, Internet and breakfast. There is a small pool. The only thing lacking is a fitness center. We walked the trails instead , so still a great deal. Front desk was very helpful.

The hotel is clean, the staff friendly and appearance good for an older Hotel. However, the bed in my experience is not comfortable at all. My husband and I did not sleep much due to the poor quantity of the bed and pillows. The bed in my opinion needs to be upgraded for a better nights rest. We could feel... More

Rooms are beautiful,super clean. The people are the best. The gentleman who checked us in called and asked if we are happy with our room. Come on who does that?? We stayed for 3 nights, and already looking forward to our return trip. So if you want to stay somewhere with people who truly care stay here.

The hotel staff was wonderful to our softball team "HC REBELS" they were sweet, they listened, fixed any issue and never had a frown. The parents loved it they all said they were satisfied with the Hotel and staff. A small thing like cookies for the girls went a long way. Thank you to the manager and cleaning staff for... More
