Slider did not have partially open locking feature. Fresh air was nice but had to close and latch for security. This was supposed to have ADA bathroom, but toilet too close to sink and T paper holder crashed knee. Walk in shower was a tub, so shower seat fit awkwardly over tub side and shower curtain was useless. Otherwise room... More

Staff was very accommodating and friendly. Cozy rooms and the location is close to city center. Family friendly. Room was clean. Amenities were above average. The complimentary breakfast was good. I'd stay here again.

My family and I recently stayed at the Governor Hotel for a long weekend while checking out the state's capitol, and the children's museum. The hotel was clean, rooms were comfortable and the staff was very friendly. We enjoyed the daily complimentary breakfast as well. Hotel is close to a park and the governors mansion. I would recommend this hotel... More

Staff was great and tried. They came to explain that the main light switch at the room entry switches nothing, then the next closest light had a bulb that was out. They fixed that. The AC was putting out warm on max cool, but they knew when we told them and said they were trying to fix it. (We were... More

The Front Desk was very nice when we arrived. Even gave us a follow up call to make sure we were happy. Room was clean and breakfast was really good as well. Location is great too! No doubt we would stay here again !

This hotel lacks the usual amenities and is in poor condition. Although my room was clean, the toilet leaked and flushed poorly while the ventilation system was noisy, even when turned off. Their complimentary breakfast was barely adequate.

Overall this is a good hotel and the breakfasts were great with a variety. Sausage, eggs, toast, yogurt, assortment of fruits and drinks. It is always nice to get a hot cup of coffee in the morning. The rooms was clean and the bed comfortable. Would consider staying here again in the future.

If you love wifi, don't stay here! It hangs, it drops, it's gone. New carpet in room is stained, and the exterior shabby. Also, what's this weird percolating noise in the room?Okay for the price but don't expect much.

Unless we caught them on a very bad day, this is one of the worst places I have stayed in a very long time. 1st. The lobby bathroom was key accessed, but our room keys didn't work. You had to get it from the front desk, as in a gas station 2nd. It was a heat wave, but why put... More
