This is a wonderful place to stay staff very friendly and rooms were nice. The pool is very convenient, and the breakfast is nice also. We stayed for a basketball tournament and have stayed there a few times now. Would definitely recommend.

This is the worst run property that I've ever seen. I informed the manager that they were out of pool towels and he didn't believe me. I asked for extra pillows and had to stand there staring at him before he'd even give me one. The guy sits at the desk 16 hours a day so there's no getting around...

For the price this was a great stay. There were not many guests as we were staying during the week. The hotel was clearly older and being remodeled in some areas--though that had no impact on our stay. The room was clean and appeared to have been recently remodeled...fresh paint, updated pictures, bathroom appeared to have been completely remodeled. Furniture...

We will never stay at this hotel again!! We just checked in today, 4/14/14. My husband and I thought we would treat our children to skyzone and a night at the hotel to swim and get away from home. The kids couldn't stand to stay in the pool because the water was cold and salty due to whatever new technology...

Staff is super nice, rooms were very clean, and they were very willing to fix any issues that may have arisen during our stay! :) It has a really nice heated indoor pool that the kids really enjoyed. I was very satisfied with our weekend trip to visit my mother and definitely would stay again!

If you're looking for a place to stay while in town or on business then this is a great place to stay. Reviews & ratings are one thing, but for what you pay it's almost like you get a bit more than what you asked for.
