I spent five nights at the Carlyle with my first year adult leadership class last February. This is the best place to stay! They treat you like royalty here! It really does become your home! Many thanks to Brian, Wayne, Kenya, and Cassandra!

Excellent customer service. The staff is friendly and extremely helpful and made our stay so pleasant, especially Manuel, Will, Wayne and Bethany. The rooms are small but well decorated; our room had a great shower; however, there is limited space for clothing if you are staying for awhile. Good coffee in the lobby in the morning and several newspapers to read. Also the hotel price includes uber rides in the morning and evening to nearby destinations.

Staff was so friendly and helpful. Thank you Brian, Ashley, Manuel, Will and Wayne. Highly recommend this hotel!

Woefully understaffed. Check in at a busy time took far too long. Rooms are small but well-renovated. Check out in the early morning took a long time. Had to wait for the one person who also puts out the coffee. Fussy and a little pretentious. I won’t be back.

Jacob G, Thank you for visiting us and for sharing your opinion. I am so sorry to read that someone at the front desk had to step away while you were checking in, which slowed the process down. My apologies that you thought the property was fussy and a little pretentious. I am not sure what made that impression on you but hope you will come back and try us out again. Sincerely, Tristan H.
