It is being remodeled, so there's tubs and mattresses on the side of the hotel. We weren't bothered by that. I do not recommend balcony view on the first floor. The staff was great! Very friendly, that sometimes makes a difference. We needed extra towels no problem. We did use the laundry room. Breakfast was ok. We had a happy... More

Had a good stay, but we were on a tight budget. Had 2 very small dogs, ended up 40.00 a night for both of them. I didn't find these prices listed anywhere on Website. Can see those prices if they were large dogs maybe. Staff very nice, hotel being remodeled, so had perhaps more outside trash than usual. Breakfast not... More

The hotel room was clean and well kept. And breakfast was ok but not great, if you choose to eat breakfast there do not be a minute late, at 9:30 am everything gets put away. The pool area was small and shallow it could use some updating and cleaned. The hotel is on the main strip which is good and... More

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.
