The room was clean and quiet, but it wasn't what I normally expect from a HIX hotel. For the money, I think I would look to another property. The hotel was dated, and the enthusiastic desk clerk made sure I knew that they were doing renovations and the projected schedule for completion. (I wasn't interested. I just wanted to get... More

Drove around for Parking and there wasn't a single Space. The only spaces we found were for the comfort inn next door. We have been standing at the front desk for 20 minutes to check in and there isn't a Single person in site to help Us. If there was another option besides comfort inn close then we would leave....

Stacy C, I would like to apologize for the check in process you had recently. I can understand the frustrations in not being able to find parking when you are trying to get all settled in, as well as the fact that the front desk agent was not present. Since we share the parking lot with another hotel, as well... More

First, this place is hard to get to....look for the Denny's, it's behind that. The hotel looks decent when you drive up, but then you try to find a parking spot (good luck) and you realize something's not right. Inside, the lobby is cramped and naturally they don't acknowledge my platinum status and don't offer me an amenity. Oh well,... More

I checked in on a Thursday evening and the night manager was very friendly. She saw me for the next 2 evenings and inquired about my grandma each evening. She was the reason I was visiting. Rooms were clean and updated. Free breakfast was good with lots of options. Hotel is conveniently located right off the highway with restaurants and... More

4/24/2015. OK....so you may have given your guests a heads up that you were currently under renovation...we call that common courtesy where I grew up, but I guess your running a business and you don't want to loose money.

Good stay at a fair price. 3 nights while in town visiting family on vacation. Clean and quiet. Staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is good. 8 year old son loved the pancake machine. There are shared facilities such as pool, hot tub, laundry, and parking with hotel next-door. This property much better than that one.

A good hotel with very friendly staff and good service. My only to concerns are the location to down town and to public transport to get there. The MTS system is excellent and cheap but you have a long trek to the nearest bus stop.

Pretty much your prototypical HIE. I've been to many of them as I travel full time doing business, and this one has all the amenities that you expect in a HIE, but just older-looking rooms.
