I travel a lot, and have been staying here for many weeks this year. Nancy always greets me at the check in desk with a friendly attitude and makes sure I have everything I need. The rooms are well maintained, kept clean, TV always works Great place to stay.

We stayed here as a pit stop on a trip to the national parks and was surprised by the hotel. It was very comfortable and updated. The breakfast as in most H.I. Exp. hotels was plentiful and fresh. Would stay here again!

We had a great stay with our 7 and 9 years olds. The hotel was clean, quiet, and comfortable. The staff was friendly. Breakfast was very good, too. There is a nice lobby area to gather in. The location was convenient.

My sister and I stayed here and regretted it almost immediately. She had made a reservation for 1st floor which they assured her of getting, but not available once we arrived a few hours later after the call. The remote was missing a battery.

This was one of the nicest hotel rooms I've stayed in. We stayed in a single room with a king sized bed. The room was very large and comfortably furnished. The room's ceilings seemed higher than most hotels and that really gave the room a spacious feel. The furniture was nice and in good shape, not worn out or grimy,... More

Ended up here because the Hampton Inn was booked and a happy hour sounded nice. (M-W only) The $157 for a one bed room seems way overpriced. The happy hour is for members only. Even though we had signed up for a membership several years back, the clerk could not find our account and suggested the account had been deleted.... More
