We had an excellent stay. The pool, hot tub, and sauna were well kept and clean. My favorite part was the breakfast. It was amazing and had many different options. I would definitely recommend the Longbranch hotel. It is worth the cost for sure!

Hotel's Favorite
Super friendly front desk staff. Very comfortable room with all proper amenities, i.e. plenty of towels (other hotels we’ve stayed in lately seem to be giving TWO towels?). Nice updated decor. Didn’t take advantage of the breakfast or fitness center so can’t comment on that.

The hotel was super clean with friendly staff. The hotel accommodated a large group and everyone was very happy. I will be returning and I've already recommended to others. The building inside was unique and not like a cookie cutter hotel.

This hotel was in a great location. Check-in was very easy, the team member was very helpful and friendly. The room was nice and clean. It had everything that you would need. The hotel also had a restaurant in the hotel that was delicious. It is a Mexican restaurant and the staff was great. I would definitely stay there again.

I travel 3 days a week for my job. I’ve stayed at almost all of the hotels in the area. I keep coming back to the Longbranch. Not because of price. But service. Service before during and after the sale. I’m treated like a king there and will continue to stay

Our first room had no heat at all. The second room did not have heat until we checked into it, they then turn on heat access from the front desk. It took until the next morning before the room was even warm as it was negative degrees outside so the room was about 20° when we gained access. Mind you the hotel is multiple buildings, so if you stay near the pool you will need to go to a different building each time you have an issue. There was also a large spider in one of the beds along with webs all over the ceiling. Worst hotel we have stayed at in at least the last 5 years.

Thank you for your review, I apologize your stay was not comfortable. The desk team offered you a different room and a food voucher for the inconvenience moving. Follow up, our maintenance team did check out both rooms and found the units working properly.

Came and stayed for a medical appointment.. I really liked the availability of an on sight restaurant and bar with top shelf liquor. The room was clean and great location with short distance to pool and hot tub area ( pool was nice and warm). Also , a short distance was free breakfast that was delicious… all and all.. our stay was comfortable and relaxing at a very reasonable price…

Our hockey team used this hotel. Great set up for a block of rooms. Basically had our own building and could sit in lounge and see most of the rooms. Friendly efficient staff! Would stay again. Did not use breakfast so can’t review that.
