The staff was very friendly and the rooms were in good shape and clean. The breakfast on weekends is good but during the week it is bagels and toast, with juices and coffee. The building could use some updating but overall we had a good experience here.

An old hotel that needs a lot of TLC...although must have been impressive at one time. Lobby smelled kind of moldy, and no one was at the front desk for some time. When staff did appear they were friendly and helpful with directions for the area. Rooms were clean, but bed's worn out....beetles??? in room. Restaurant not open three nights... More

Stayed for convention in July, 2016. Totally awesome staff. Would do anything they were asked. Manager, Tom, was involved in all aspects of running the hotel...really dedicated. Hotel was laid out differently due to expansions but the staff made up for many things.

We stayed here for a family wedding as the bride had arranged a block of rooms for $99. Not a bad deal, but not the greatest price for the little annoying things that put us in a bad mood. We were welcomed warmly, checked in extra early, no problem. The room itself was large enough but lighting poor and one... More

As Coordinator of the convention, I worked closely with the management and they were friendly, eager to meet our every need, and went over and above to make sure all the needs were met. Couldn't have been more pleased with the meeting rooms, meal functions, delicious food, and overall care in taking care of the delegation.

Stayed for an overnight while we were on the road. Everything is just worn down. Confusing layout with poor signage. Beds, carpet and wallpaper were in need of replacement. Window was broken in entry way. Bar was nice, but in need of renovation. Room was large and refrigerator and microwave were nice.

First time staying here, we travel to area yearly for sports competition. Our room was updated and clean. Poor lighting however. Hotel overall was clean and had updates. Needed some sprucing up in some areas. One common issue throughout, including our room was that the carpeting desperately needs to be replaced. Staff was very helpful and friendly.

Wonderful staff, and great convention rates for the room. Meeting space was just perfect for both our Business meeting and banquets. Guest Rooms were spacious and clean. Amenities were good, Outdoor pool was a good gathering spot. Hot tub was a little murkey.

While the staff made up for a lot, unfortunately there were a lot of things they had to make up for. The price was great, but you get what you pay for at this motel. The breakfast was adequate—there were limited options—it's hard to go wrong with hard boiled eggs, yogurt cups and bagels. They did have three types of... More
