We booked with this hotel through Booking.com at $59 ($74 with tax) a night for a king room with a balcony and breakfast from a Monday to a Friday. When we arrived we actually got a single queen bed in a double room with the balcony, fridge, microwave and nice TV. No remote for the TV, however. The room was... More

We drove ten hours after booking out hotel months in advance, called to confirm twice, including the day of, arrived and they has given our room away. Rude, incompetent, unprofessional staff. Do not stay here the staff are deceitful and only care about money and filling room, not about cleanliness or customer satisfaction. Worst experience ever.

Looked like this hotel was given a face lift recently, but you still get the sense it's an older building. The elevator was a little creaky, but the lobby and breakfast area were nice and clean. We had booked a room with 2 queen beds but when we got there we asked for a room with a balcony if possible.... More

I took a group of high school kids in early June, and we were generally pleased with our stay. The rooms were good and comfortable. We did have one issue with an air conditioner not working, but it was fixed in a very timely manner. There was a little construction noise from some of the renovations being done, but it... More

I made my reservation a month in advance 4 109.00 nightly room rate. I get a call from hotel wed. 6/18 to see if we're coming. Found odd, they never call. Find out they canceled our reservation without our consent basically to price gouge due to TI concert.

A group of us stayed at the hotel. My room was awesome, but my relative's room was nowhere near as nice. We both paid the same price. I guess if you are going to stay, makes sure you ask for the renovated rooms.

Very disgusting. Definetely will not come back.
