“Friendly Staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Stayed here with 5 Tweens for a birthday sleepover party on a Saturday night. Belinda and Kim were both very friendly and accommodating. The pool area is nice for kids. It has a water slide, small regular pool, a separate small wading pool for toddlers, and fair-sized hot tub. Seems to be a popular place for families and kids on the weekends because of the pool. They do have adult only swim after 10 pm. The woman who worked in the pool area was incredibly friendly, great with kids and tried to make sure everyone had a good time. Room was clean, but fan did not work in the bathroom. Normal continental breakfast with malted waffles and scrambled eggs, etc. Rooms are well soundproofed as neighbors said they couldn't hear our really noisy kids.

Terrible experience - some hotel's responsibility, some chance. For hotel, pool looked very dirty. My 10 yr old and I didn't want to swim after we'd had a look. The hot tub looked ok but was full of rowdy hockey players who had also set off the fire alarm. Nice staff but hotel seemed unprepared to handle to problems of wild teenage hockey players. Topper was broken shower. Pass on ever staying again.

We decided to stay at this Hotel for our Holiday Travels this year and booked a 3 night stay based on the reviews and location. When we arrived we found this Hotel to be lacking in several ways. I can say that the Pool area is completely disgusting. In fact, my daughter refused to Swim in it as the discoloration was terrible. Overall, we found the hotel to be dirty and not well kept. I checked out the same night and drove an hour to another Hotel that was much, much better (Holiday Inn Express). I did have a nice conversation the next day with the General Manager who was very kind but in all honesty I would never, ever stay in this location again. Unfortunately, this hotel chain is very dated.

My wife and I stayed here recently with our grandchildren. We had a great stay. The front desk person(s) were all friendly and helpful. Our check-in was completed quickly and efficiently. We found our room on 3rd floor to be clean and inviting. The small fridge in the room came in handy for us. The pool was fun and refereshing. The pool liner is stained and appears dirty but as the manager of the pool area explained to us it is just the hard water used in the pool. She assured us the water was clean and I believe it was. There were many items available to choose from for breakfast. The coffee and teas were GREAT!

Room Tip: If you want to use the waterslide be sure to ask at reservation time if it will be up and running fo...

I stayed at this hotel and I had a suite which was not allowed by my company. I went down stairs to exchange for a regular room. They asked would it be acceptable with my company if they let me stay in the suite at the regular room price. I said yes indeed. That was so refreshing because the suites are awesome. The property is very clean and well maintained.

Room Tip: This property is located near an Interstate highway and a well traveled local highway. Could be a d...

Checked in at midnight on our way North over Labor Day weekend. Front desk was courteous even at this hour and took the time to explain breakfast and pool hours. Room was spacious with 2 queen beds. Bedding was soft with higher-grade sheet count. Even though close to a major interstate, the room was quiet and we didn't hear traffic or any of our neighbors. Breakfast consisted of breads/muffins/pastries, cold and hot cereals, make-your-own waffles, pre-made french toast (dry and hard), sausage and yogurt.

The highlight was the pool area - the waterslide was a huge hit with the kids! The pools were warm enough to be able to jump right in and the hot tub felt great on the tired travel-weary muscles. Wrist bands are required, so be sure to ask the front desk for them when checking in.

The staff made us feel very welcome. ALWAYS friendly and helpful. Hostess Paula went way out of her way to make us comfortable on several occasions. We WILL be coming back soon. Great genuine hospitality that the staff exemplifies. They truly make you feel at home.
