He tried to get me off his back as quickly as possible. No priority club goodie bag. Kinda felt being nickle and dimed. No free upgrade for platinum member. I have stayed countless times and got used to automatic upgrade. It never happened to me before. Otherwise, it is clean and comfy. Okay hotel.

We arrived very late, but check in was a breeze. The lady checking us in was efficient, and gave us the usual information about breakfast, wi-fi, etc. She then presented me with my Priority club "snack" of water and fritos. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and the ac worked great without being too noisey. My only complaint,... More

I stayed on points so essentially got the hotel for free over memorial day night. At first blush the room smelled like a dirty mop head...but that smell dissipated over the night. And the east entrance sort of smelled strange, it could be that the wind was coming out of the east and I was smelling od de dumpster from... More

Convenient, quiet location but still close to everything. Check in was speedy and pleasant. Small problem with room was repaired quickly. Room was very clean. Generally a nice stay. My only desire would have been a softer bed. We both thought the mattress was a bit too hard. Breakfast offering was hot and cold items and, of course, the warm... More

It was a nice place with comfy beds and new tv's. Plenty of parking and nice breakfast. Fun sports bar wings place real close. Yes I will stay again when in historic Defiance. The staff was very nice too.

Found this to be a "4-C" hotel: clean, comfortable, convenient and cool. Sufficient updates to be in step with the times, along with the simple pluses like fridge and microwave that I appreciate. There was also a small, but suitable fitness center, featuring not only the standard treadmill but also weight equipment to do lat pulls, bicep curls, etc. Free... More

We were in town for a wedding and didn't expect this property to be as nice. Front desk, housekeeping and breakfast staff so nice- even gave us early check-in. Our teen girls enjoyed pool and hot tub. Restaurant walking distance.Clean rooms. Good value.

Clean hotel with very nice and competent staff. Breakfast was quite good and consisted of pancakes, bacon, biscuits, cereal, yogurt, assortment of juices, coffee, etc. BW's restaurant within walking distance to hotel. Very pleased with our stay.
