While most hotel restaurants exist based upon convenience and guests desire to stay put once checked in this is not the case here. Harrison's is worth a stop whether you are staying at this hotel or not. The resturant features a varied menu and speciality items that are freshly prepared. While really having no "decor" to speak of the food... More

We booked a King room with a whirlpool tub, when we arrived the vent in the room was rattling so loudly we could barely hear ourselves talking. The garbage had also not been emptied. The staff member switched us to another room which did not have a tub...but that was ok with me since I wasn't impressed with the cleanliness.... More

Lobby was beautiful, and the staff was very inviting. One of the nicer hotels I have stayed at in a long time. Pool/hot tub were very clean. Great value for the money and close to the attractions I was there for. Would chose this hotel again for sure!

Good value. The hotel is located close to both the campus and near the interstate. The restaurant staff both for breakfast and dinner were very helpful and cordial. I will definitely stay again when I'm in the area.

The mini-fridge was only mini in size, not volume. It rattled all night long. It was extremely loud for such a small appliance. The beds were very poor. I mainly still at Hilton chains, and these beds were the worst of any Hilton brand hotel that I have experienced. They were concaved. I had the attempt to hold onto the... More

I stayed there recently using Hilton HHonors points and was as well treated as any paying guest. The folks at the desk were friendly and accommodating .. they asked my preferences and offered to place me on the 4th floor at the end of the hall (hence absolutely minimal traffic). Rooms were spacious, clean and up to date. The room... More

The hotel is very comfortable and the restaurant services and food is EXCELLENT! I would frequent the restaurant if I lived in the area. The cleaning staff was cheerful and polite when we met them in the hallway. This all adds to the overall welcoming of the hotel. Just an aside, the fact that the duvets on the beds are... More
