I initially stopped here because of the previous reviews however it was disgusting. I have stayed in a SUPER 8 that was nicer than this. The room was dirty my sons socks were black, I got in the shower and seen dirt coming off my feet as well. The floor literally had a hump in it and was completely uneven... More

I got upgraded to a 2 queen suite for a weekend visit. Very nice and close to the summit and good eating places. Staying on the fifth floor was nice. Except the sun rise came in through the window. Oh well only a minor inconvenience. It would be nice to have power outlets on the lamp between the beds like... More

For the price, this was worth the stay. It was clean and in a safe and convenient area. Check in was a breeze. Plenty of parking that is well lit. Nice breakfast included. Indoor pool. My only complaint is that our room seemed to not cool very well. The humidity inside was also abnormally high.

Needed a place to stay prior to visiting the zoo. Called reservations and was directed to this hotel. Room was ready and chilled when we arrived. Pool was clean. Staff very nice. Breakfast cook was very nice and made sure we had what we needed. All items were full even when the buffet was closing down. I'd stay here again.

While driving cross country, we decided to get a room here last minute. It was around 12am and it was one of the only hotels that could accommodate the 5 of us (2 adults/3 kids). The room had two queen beds and a pullout bed. Let's just say the pullout bed mattress was a mess. You can literally see the... More

I had high expectations for the motel, based on its description on various sites, but it turned out only to be average. For one thing, a motel that accepts dogs--though at a hefty $35 fee--should provide a dog-walking area with bags and a trash recepticle. It did not. Also, on Sunday morning there was trash that hadn't been cleaned in... More
