I always read reviews before I select a hotel. I think this is just my nature of trying to get the best deal for the least cost. I look for ratings and then scan down to find the hotel with the most stars at the least cost... and believe me that doesn't always turn out well. So this hotel had... More

The service was generally rude or disinterested. The breakfast bar was not replenished, even after requests, so those not arriving early had little left from which to choose.

These is an update to a previous review. The second time was not a charm. They didn't have my reservations and tried to charge me more for the room. They did not want me to go back to the car to get the confirmation print out I had. After I did and proved to them what the rate was they... More

My daughter and I were in town for a softball tournament. I called for a rate quote ahead of time, but when I arrived to check in after 8pm I was given a different rate. I was told that the rooms with a view are more expensive and they didn't have any of the non-view rooms available. I took what... More

This is an older property situated high above the southbound side of Interstate 81. Its design indicates that it is a former Holiday Inn. While the location affords nice views, it also means considerable road noise from the interstate; you might be better off booking a "backside" room. Checking in proved to be a chore - though 2 people were... More

I just needed a place to spend the night The low rates concerned me, but I was in need of a bargain. We had a total of 3 rooms in our party and was pleased with each room, and especially the price. There was slight grumbling at the breakfast, but the problem was this: there is a huge breakfast area... More

No internet access as advertised. System had been down for some time with no resolution on the horizon. Rooms are aging and in disrepair. We were forced to find another hotel to support business-related stay. The front desk was very helpful, if only to get the reservation out of the system.

We booked this hotel after checking reviews, and were happier than we expected to be. It was a large room, clean, and had a continental breakfast included in the price. Would recommend to anyone.
