My family was in town for State High School Bowling Championships. The team and all family members who were able to go stayed here. This is what made my decision to stay.. By booking online and paying for the first night allowed me to obtain a great rate for the complete stay. The hotel was very clean, employees were awesome and quick to respond to any request. The pool was a nice bonus. The Wi-fi was also good. Had a fabulous time while I was there and having a great place to rest our head at night helped. The rooms were in fabulous shape. I look forward to another stay at this hotel...

Aside from the big man w lots of kids and many waffles to make, it was a treat to stay here. I do, however, give the breakfast buffet a thumbs up. Our room was clean, spacious, and nice. The staff was friendly(the entire staff) and helpful. My boyfriend used his senior discount and the check in/out process went like clockwork. The hotel is close to the Glass museum, which we highly recommend, and the aquarium is a few miles close. It's not a bad are for sight seeing either. I really love the number of pillows provided(a chic thing) and I forgot to ask what make and model their beds are. OMG, cumfy, he and I both slept awesome. I do advise asking for a room not next to the elevator. It didn't bother us but it may for people who have sensitive hearing. It was a deep hum, not loud. Overall...A-

Room Tip: Get to the waffle maker prior to the opening of breakfast and if noises bother you, get a room away...

After a horrible experience beyond measure at Crossland, this hotel was awesome and understanding. They gave us a reasonable rate based on our experience down the street. We enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this facility, it was quiet, people were helpful, breakfast was fantastic with a great variety and the coffee stayed out during the day as well.

Room Tip: This hotel was near a bar, but still quiet, and a casino within walking distance, although you would...

I stayed a couple months ago and came back for business (to a different hotel) this last week. I didn't come back for a reason. Mattress is in need of replacement and I wasn't very pleased with the cleansliness.

Needs remodel.
