My daughter and I stayed here while she participated in a volleyball tournament at the Sky High facilities. We stayed for two days during the weekend the area experienced blizzard-like conditions. The hotel is not bad, but it is not above average either. First, the good things about the hotel: the room was clean, the beds were comfortable and the bathroom was updated with good lighting. The lobby was pleasant and well-lit. I noticed they had a couple of computers set up with internet access. Nice touch. Next, the bad things about the hotel: the bathroom is not big enough for two people. It was very frustrating trying to get ready in the morning and maneuver in and around the bathroom. The breakfast at the hotel was disappointing. They didn't offer a good variety. For example, one day it was eggs and the next day pancakes. The only other breakfast offering both days was toast and cold cereal. It is fair to note that our group had an arrangement with the hotel to have a conference room set up for breakfast with dedicated service. We did not eat in the hotel restaurant and cannot comment on how good or bad the food is there. Overall, this hotel is not bad and does meet my minimum daily requirements. However, if I were choosing a hotel and I was not part of a large group, I probably would have stayed at another local hotel.
