“Over All Experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

I had the pleasure of staying over the weekend, From the Courteous Front Desk staff and well appointed clean rooms to the sumptuous complementary breakfast served in the romantic oyster restaurant. All aspects of stay exceeded my expectations. Being so close to the center city activity and river views in FM Kirby Park made the trip even more enjoyable. Thank you for a pleasurable experience and I look forward to staying with you again!

Room Tip: The higher the better, views of downtown are spectacular

Staff very accommodating---good value, great location. Restaurant offers excellent dinner options---everything is fresh and well-presented. Business center conveniently located. Buffet lunch is a great value with plenty of variety. Rooms clean, spacious.

The hotel rooms are very comfortable and pet friendly but I would pass on the Oasis restaurant next time. While convenient for the road weary traveler the food was not up to the standard for the higher prices. The waiter interjected his own personal stories into our conversations.

The owner has set out to offer a moderate hotel accommodation with excellent service and well cared for and updated rooms. He has succeeded. Mr. Genetti is a town father of long standing and proud of his hotel and his town. Parks and other town features are named for him.

I lead small groups twice a year from Virginia to Vermont with a Sunday night stop at this Hotel - been doing it for a dozen years or more and we are always pleased with our choice. Many participants enjoy their first visit to Genetti's and their uniform comment is how did you find this out of the way very nice place. The answer is trial and error -- our group has stayed at many other places nearby.

The included full hot breakfast is well prepared and includes much variety - far superior to most chains.

The lobby has not been updated for sometime and looks a bit shop worn. This is in contracts to the spiffy and recently updated rooms. The recently updated elevators were long overdue.

You will need to be persistent in finding the place as it is a good distance from the Interstate and requires several turns. This hotel is located in the older town center near a park and a number of office buildings.

Room Tip: ask for an upper floor room.

We needed a place to spend the night while looking at nearby colleges and this hotel was fine. You could park at the hotel and walk a couple of blocks downtown to shop, eat, or just relax. We will come again because our son will be enrolling in college a half mile away.

Checked in rather late in the evening and was greeted by a pleasant and smiling receptionist. The beds were very comfortable and provided a really good night's sleep. Breakfast was right on target and the coffee was just what the doctor orders for early morning risers!
