“Bad Service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Definitely not the nicest place, but great location and free parking for games. We have been going for the past 4 years and bring more friends every time. This last time I had small couch sized pillows and asked for more. I had to ask 4 times before I never got a pillow even though I was promised a call, about the pillow and then a pillow. I left an item in my room and it was torture to get a hold of someone, get a call back, and figure out how to get my item back. Their customer service is the worst I have ever experienced and I don't care how convenient it is, I will never stay there again.

Clean, simple, no frills. The price was right, staff was pleasant, and location was great. Smell of smoke dominated first floor walk to elevator. The elevator was slow and floor light button did not work. Our nonsmoking room smelled musty. Microwave and frig were a nice bonus. Other reviews were spot on.

Well it's usable but no not the nicest place, forget the "breakfast", if you pay extra and get a corner room in the spring and fall it's got a balcony and it's nice, you can't really see the river, but --- The place was semi-clean and quiet, but the door locks are a challenge.

Twice I've been there and seen people getting arrested so ---- beware. I think the total price was about $80 so it's not cheap, it's lower cost than the surrounding area.

Room Tip: Pay extrra for the corner room with the balcony.

I was a little intimidated by the exterior, it wasnt very welcoming but the stay was unexpected and not in our budget. I was pleasantly surprised by the price and by the quality of the room. Newly decorated and updated. The room was comfortably sized and very nice size bathroom. The shower was hot and great water pressure, incliding a curved extra space shower rod. I enjoyed the shower so much, i updated my bathroom including the new rod shortly after. We are planning the next trip over Christmas and will be staying again.
