The room was the perfect setup for my daughter and I and had ever in-room necessity we could ask for, including a coffee maker, in-room fridge, robes, a flat screen TV, and... More

We really enjoyed our 3 nights. All of the staff were very helpful. Enjoyed the shuttle service to the zoo and Old Town. Jeff was a fun, competent, knowledgeable driver. We really appreciated the recycling service and efforts to conserve water.

The staff were friendly and helpful. The laundry set up was good too, easy to work and efficient. Unfortunately our beds were 3/4 double beds so was not ideal. All the other hotels had double beds as a minimum and mostly queen size.

Thankfully we were here 2 nights. The hotel wasn't bad it was just tired and the staff were just not interested in the guests. Free car parking is useful though and they have a great driver they use who was well priced efficient and new the city like the back of his hand. I would suggest when booking this place... More

The hotel definitely is a little older than I imagined and reminds me of being away at some log cabin type of resort with a cheap bar. The hotel also had an interesting smell from the lobby to the rooms. Looks like older people would come here for bingo tournaments or something. The beds were comfy however and at least... More
