Bad experience! Started with being made to feel like a lower rated customer due to booking with Expedia. Hotel was dirty. Very short on resturant staff causing restaurant not to open both nights I stayed there. Lounge staff was excellent, but had to listen to unhappy staff. Checked out a day early due to unpleasantness.

Had a romantic night planned. King sized bed...pull back the covers to reveal sheets that don't fit the bed. They were too short for the mattress! Called and talked to the front desk- they apologized but said they had no other sheets. Blamed the mattress size. Had no other rooms available due to a convention in town. Very disappointing night.... More

This hotel is a wrinkle away from being labeled senile, and a dive. We rented here as it was on sale through Hotels.com and on the river. Check-in went smoothly enough, but there are clear signs of aging and even falling apart throughout the establishment. The carpets are stained and worn, the wallpaper in the hallways is ripped, stained, and... More

I want to thank Justin, the overnight manager for his phenomenal service he provided. There was a humidity issue with our room and he personally came to the room to check right away. He agreed with the problem and moved us to a new room in less than an hour that was much better and was a two room suite!... More

We tried it because the location was acceptable and the price was best for downtown location. Needs a bit of a facelift but for the price considering the market it was ok. The staff was friendly. The check in and check out was quick despite a little confusion about the reservation. It was handled quickly and to our satisfaction.

Very dated and musty smelling rooms. Woke up to find ants all over room. Only positive was staff at front desk who remained positive despite dealing with complaints from many other guests. We sent an email to management about the ants and other issues but never received a response.

Stains on the bedding. Mold in the shower. Moldy smelling room. Dirty on the tile floor. Bathroom door hit toilet so that it couldn't open properly. Halls had dirt on the floor as though they hadn't been vacuumed in a year or more. Tape falling off the walls. It was just disgusting. I ran to the front desk to check... More

Hotel was nice and the room was clean and comfortable. We checked in a bit early as our drive was very long and we needed to rest. Unfortunately that didn't happen as we were below construction that was happening in hotel. I asked the front desk to move us and was told they were fully booked and couldn't do that.... More

This hotel did the most important things well - front desk staff was friendly and helpful, the bed was comfortable, the shower was warm, and the rooms were quiet. The restaurant food was fantastic, and the chef even made a special request for my wife who suffers from food allergies. However...there were some issues. It seems like whomever they contracted...

$138 for a king bed and a sofa. Room was small with nasty old carpet. Cups and water bottles looked like they've been re-packaged/re-used. Terrible looking area with panhandlers just outside. Did not feel safe leaving my car in their parking lot. This is a 2-star place at best and should charge no more than $80/room/night.
