In despair I called front desk for that night's room( it's absolutely not reservation) as bad weather in some other place forced me to divert my trip here in the last minute.

Two night stay. Check in was simple and typical to most HI's. Nice lobby and breakfast area that was well taken care of in the morning. Oatmeal, eggs, bacon, cereals, bagels, fruits and your typical coffee, tea, juices, etc...Can't complain at all since it's much easier to eat there than go out and find something. Room was reasonable size with... More

Let's start with reservations...Patti is amazing. She got 5 rooms together for my team for an amazing rate. Then we have Kris, when I called in the morning I asked if he could get all those rooms together and he did just that right before we got there. Then we have this amazing 3rd shift front manager. Who after a... More

This HIExpress is your typical, older HIE except for....the lobby; It was large, warm and fairly welcoming with a sitting area and gas fireplace and they had a good selection of drinks/snacks to buy with an extra large fridge in the room. The beds were ok...sheets were hard and rather old/bathroom was very small. Again, your average HIE.

Upon my arrival I was greeted by a "Kris" who checked me in. When I got to the room I immediately knew that this was NOT the room that I booked and explained to Kris that when I booked the SAME room last year I had encountered the same problem which was why I called a week ahead to confirm...

They seem to have an issue regulating the pool temperature. It used to be consistently warm. I've had a membership for years. Who wants to swim in a cold pool on a freezing, Winter day? I certainly don't. Was shocked at how cold it was when a pool party had previously taken place two hours before. Everybody that was in... More
