We booked this hotel for 2 reasons, it is located on the grounds of Millcreek mall, and because we got a rate on $112 on Priceline.
The hotel is in a great location, right off Peach Street (the road with all the shops, restaurants and things to do) and it is next to the mill in town. The area around the hotel is strange and odd. An empty big box mall sits on the far side of the hotel! It feels like a ghost town. I know its not the hotel's fault, but it ruins the first impression of the hotel.
When we arrived, we found the entire hotel lobby wrapped in plastic and the front desk area occupied by 4 people, 2 of whom were in uniforms the others wearing ball caps and jeans!!! NOT IMPRESSIVE! After I inquired about the condition of the lobby, I was informed that it was being remodled and the guys in caps are painters. Fair enough, but had we known the hotel would be wrapped in renolds wrap, we wouldn't have booked there.
Our room was clean, nice, good beds, warm. Bathroom was clean, and floor shined (even behind the door!). Hotel supplied shampoo, etc.
The indoor pool and hot tub is very nice, warm water, clean, and looked newer.
The next morning, the plastic wrap was down and the lobby was set up and ready for the guests who were paying to stay there, to finally have access to it. Not bad lobby, it is also where the free cold breakfast is served each morning.
The free breakfast in the morning was OVER at 9am!!! That is crazy as most hotels run it 'til at least 10 am. At any rate, the serving area was crowded with pushy people all reaching for that last donut. Not a big selection, you may be just better off doing breakfast at Bob Evans down the road.
There is no restaurant or bar at this hotel. There is a pub/bar in the strip mall next door.
I would say that the hotel seemed overpriced for what is was. I would think $89 would be a fair rate for this property.
