Plenty of parking here. And in need of a little updating.. Elevator is slow and rickety. Breakfast is typical pickings of eggs meats and cereals to fruits. At least they have something.. Overall the rooms are ok in size but bathrooms are tight!! Mattress is super comfy as are the pillows.. So for the most part you'll get a great... More

Not likes one places I stayed, that were like rocks. It had a small refrigerator, microwave and coffee pot. The staff... More

I love it. however the advance purchase and non- refundability is BS. I will never book with them again. They have no flexability on this at all. Not Cool.... More

The front desk staff was friendly and helpful when we checked in. The room was nice, clean and quiet. Breakfast was fairly standard hotel fare. The staff kept everything well-supplied and they too were friendly and helpful. There is an automatic pancake machine which my husband liked. Otherwise they had eggs every morning, ham slices and sausage. There was a... More

Jordan did a great job with our IHG platinum upgrade. He actually called me after our initial conservation. The hotel is in a safe area and looks like it has been remodeled recently. The only negative is the double doors do not open automatically and it is difficult to get your cart loaded with bags through the doors.

We had a block booking for a wedding and stayed for 3 nights. Hotel is fairly basic but clean and modern. Free breakfast was good and varied from morning to morning. Pleasant staff. The group rate was good. Plenty of local restaurants and bars.
