We were finally able to check in at 7:30 pm. Unacceptable! Multiple traveling... More

We booked 2 rooms for our family. Both were very clean and affordable. The pool was awesome and the kids loved it. The beds were nice, rooms were spacious. The breakfast buffet was delicious. Yes, the hotel is a little dated but that was okay with us. The only negative was that there was only one person at the front... More

Very convenient to the Interstate and to "Restaurant Row." The place is clean, reasonably priced and the beds are comfortable. Every member of the staff has been friendly, courteous and helpful. All team members seem genuinely interested in making one's stay an enjoyable experience. Smiling faces on everyone from housekeeping, maintenance, desk clerks and upper management. Even the manager at... More

The front desk staff here was very friendly, especially the woman who appeared to be a manager. the room was clean, which was all we were looking for - so long as the room, beds, fridge and bathroom are clean, I'm fine. we did not use the pool, as my son won't swim in a pool that is less than...

Good parking, great location near all the restaurants. Free WIFI. The pool is actually indoor and outdoor, but only goes to 4 feet deep (mostly a pool for the kids with a... More
