From first impressions as we entered the property to checking out, we were pleasantly surprised with the outstanding service every employee we encountered provided. Mel at the front desk helped us with our booking snafoo and quickly got us into her last room. The room was so clean and well kept we thought it was brand new or had just been remodeled. Nope...it's 8 years old, but has been so well cared for that you wouldn't know. With a full hotel, including a wedding and a reunion, you might think it would be noisy, but we had a great night's sleep. Breakfast was great and everything was clean and stocked. If being green or eco-friendly is important to you, the hotel uses full sized bottles of Watkins shampoo, conditioner & shower gels so there aren't any little plastic bottles AND there's enough for everyone. Thanks for making our impromptu stay great!

Friendly staff. The hotel was well kept and clean. The breakfast area was clean food was refreshed regularly and there was a large choice of items in a typical inclusive breakfast. The rooms were spacious and quiet. Room service was efficient.

This hotel chain has a consistent reputation for room quality, cleanliness, service and friendliness. This hotel met all the expectations. I stayed over a weekend on a business trip and it met my needs nicely. The fitness centre was adequate for my exercise needs.

Very nice hotel. Honored us as a gold star member with our name on a board and a star on our door. Nice touch. Bathroom was nice and big. Could have used a bigger sink area, but made do. Window looked out on grassy area.

The rooms were clean (we stayed in two different rooms), the staff was friendly and accomodating, the hair dryer was extra powerful! (1675 watts!). Bath didn't drain well but hotel staff came up and cleared within a short time. Large variety of breakfast eats, location close to many restaraunts, hospital, not far from Interstate. Cons: Pool too cool and temp not increased to what staff said it should be at even after several requests so unable to use. Observed food safety concerns - otherwise this would have five stars.

Swanlove56, Thank you for letting us know about your stay. We apologize for the inconvenience of the pool temp, the thermostat you were looking at was the temperature of the room. Our pool boiler was at the max temp allowed, which is regulated and controlled within our chemical room. We are sorry this caused your stay to be less than five stars, we do hope to see you again in the future!
