This seems like an older property in some ways-- small rooms, etc.-- however the staff service was excellent. We needed help figuring out directions to where we were going (in the midst of the rocknroll marathon closing roads in all directions) and the staff took quite a bit of time to find us maps and suggest an alternate route (which...

I called ahead to make a reservation for a 5 day business workshop at the hotel. I spoke to Heather who quoted me $79/night for the room. While staying there, they did not have my reservation for the last night, and Lizz confirmed my room for the "extra" night would be available at the $79 rate. When I went to...

Although I had never heard of this hotel before, it worked out well given the convenience to the airport, which is why I reserved a room there. The price was lower than a lot of the other hotels in the area and it was a fine experience.

We are very sorry that you were disturbed by the athletes that were staying at our hotel. You deserved better as our guest. We work hard to ensure that our guests enjoy a wonderful stay, and we obviously fell short. We hope you will give us another try one day in the future.

We have stayed at this hotel in several occasions over the past three years. Each time the staff has been friendly, courteous and professional. I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone wanting large rooms and with a distinct character.
