Housekeeping did not service our room several times. We were not given clean sheets or towels, trash was unemptied. We asked the front desk about it and they said they would see it was taken care of. Nothing, no service. We then had to go to desk to ask for towels. Housekeeping marked their roster that they had serviced the... More

I recently stayed in this hotel for 3 nights, my room was clean and comfortable, but dark because the only window was into the main hallway, and on the ground floor so I felt the need to keep the curtains closed for privacy the entire time. The hotel was under remodel at the time, and I will forgive having all... More

We attended a wedding in the same town as this hotel. The lobby was clean. Alexandria was pleasant and so charming to speak with. Conner was just the type of guy to be at the front desk. He always was with a hello, smile and truly hospitable. They do have an indoor pool which was not large but good for... More

We were here for two nights over a holiday weekend and have also stayed here before because it is very close to a relative's home. The room was clean and comfortable for a brief stay. The front desk desk staff were very welcoming and helpful. There is an indoor pool, but we never used it. The hotel offers a free... More

This hotel has been around for a long time and used to be a Howard Johnson Hotel. Not that it matters because this is a very tired, neglected property. We stayed here only because it was less than a mile from our son's home but only out of desperation would we ever stay here again. Our stay started with checking... More

We stayed here Memorial Day weekend. The staff is amazing. Everyone I came in contact with was helpful and friendly, especially the gentleman who was cleaning the pool area. Our room looked like it was an oversized room they made into a suite. It was great. Breakfast was good and kept up, the girls were filling and cleaning up constantly.... More

We booked the room for two nights to attend Yale's graduation. We asked for an earlier check in so that we could relax and refresh ourselves a bit after an eight hour ride. The room was not ready for us until almost an hour later than requested. Management said that they were fully booked the night before and were still... More
