I understand that this hotel was updated a few years ago. Well it needs more updating because the furniture in the lobby was stained and peeling. Be prepared to have vinyl pieces of the chair on your bottom after sitting on the pleather furniture. How tacky. Our room was decent. Corners were very dirty, especially in the bathroom. However the bed linen and towels were clean. They offer bath and body works toiletries which is nice. We had a fridge and microwave in the room. Parking is free. There is a restaurant on the premises but we did not eat there. Our food was catered for our event and it was very good. The fruit was sweet. The pizza was cheesy, the bacon was cooked both crispy and soft -so you had a choice. Etc, etc. The hospitality was very good. Lastly, the pool and hot tub are small. They ran out of towels in the pool area. We went to get some from the front desk and they were like “here, can you take these too and put them out for others?” Lol. It was no problem but an interesting request.

Thanks for updating us on your experience. I am sorry the lobby furniture wasn't quite right, but I am happy to hear that the bed linens and towels where nice and soft. Sounds like the event went over quite well. I hope we do get a chance to serve you again in the future.

Nice hotel, rooms are small, pool is small, hot tub is very small....lobby area is nice. The front desk said they had a shuttle to take us to and from the casino, which we were told anytime after 9pm they may be tied up with airport rides. We took it to the casino at 5pm but when it came time to bring us back ...around 8:30pm they told us the driver just went on a half hr break and to ask the casino to bring us back...disappointing!

Thanks for letting me know your feedback. We do run a shuttle everyday until 11 pm. Next trip just set up an appoinment time to be picked up or just a little flexable in your pickup time and we will get you back.

Hotel was nice but while our room seemed clean, we found glitter, a stir stick and a Rice Krispie wrapper on the floor, the tv was "smeary" from being wiped and there was enough dust on the stand the tv was on that we could write something. The room smelled like bacon when we got in it. Bathroom and bed clean. That's what counts!Pet friendly hotel which was nice and never noticeable except when people were walking out with them. Breakfast was very good but not included. Check in was a pleasure with the staff.

I am so glad that you enjoyed the stay at the hotel. I am reviewing your comments with the housekeeping team to ensure we can make improvements where needed. On your next visit, book our best breaks rate. For $10 more per night you get a voucher for 2 people for breakfast.

Check in was quick and the front desk employee was friendly. The room was clean and very nice. The next morning I had a doctor's appt. out of the area. Once my daughter and I got several miles from the hotel she realized that she left her brand new Apple airpods on the bed. I told her we didn't have time to turn around and that nobody would take them. When we returned that afternoon the airpods were gone. The manager told us that they probably ended up in the laundry and that he would check into it and make it right. That night we realized that the sheets weren't even changed. Whenever I checked with the front desk to follow up with the manager he was either unavailable or not in. He never reached out to us. We had to call to have our room cleaned. All the maid did was change out towels. Toiletries and coffee were never replenished. Sheets never changed. Trash cans not emptied. We called and our room was cleaned after 6:00 at night. No apologies by staff. Very disappointed.

I am again sorry that your Air pods were lost. As, I said on the message that I left for you and you pointed out, the housekeeping team never changed your sheets. So, how they would have found a pair of air pods hidden under a pillow I will not know. I am sorry that your grand daughter lost the air pods. I wish there was more I could do.

My son and I recently spent the weekend here. After being in hotels from coast to coast, it's not always easy to impress me. However this one did. The bed was super comfortable and I slept like a baby. The TV was the largest one I had ever seen in any hotel I've ever stayed at. But what truly made this one of the BEST stays ever was the incredible staff. When Larcell checked me in, he was both friendly and professional - which is so rare to find. He made me feel right at home and like a part of the family. He is a gift to the hospitality world!! Michael, another front desk agent, had such a professional demeanor. I observed him waiting on several guests. He had a unique ability to make every single guest seem like they were the most important guest in the hotel. He should teach classes on how to make your clients feel important and valued. I can't wait to return to this hotel for yet another amazing stay!!
