The staff here is excellent. After two or three visits, some already knew my name, and they do everything they can to make your stay a pleasant one. The rooms are well set up, the beds are comfortable, and the wireless internet is fast and reliable. Breakfast in the morning is also a big plus.

We stayed during a college visit. Loved that you could walk over the bridge to get to the campus. Convenient. Great free breakfast. Nice room. Clean and beds were comfortable. Helpful staff. Would stay again.

I stayed here one night for a business meeting. The staff were very helpful in regard to making shuttle arrangements. I wanted to catch an early flight to avoid some bad weather. The young man at the desk was very accommodating and made arrangements to have the shuttle leave early (which he actually drove). The facility was very clean, very... More

I stayed at the Prince Conference Center for 4 days and 3 nights for a professional conference. All meals (except one dinner) were provided by the Center. Meals are very balanced, with plenty of options for any dietary needs. It is a value-style hotel, consistent with what you might find at a Best Western or Holiday Inn. However, the cleanliness...

Due to flight delays I didn't get in until 1:00am. Normally they pick you up in a van but due to the late hour they said to take a cab and reimburse me. Room was clean and nice size, hot breakfast in the morning. My class meets in a meeting room there and the lunches and snacks are excellent. They... More

While waiting for mom to return from a long trip overseas, We needed a place to crash for a couple of hours. They were very accommodating to help us out and even offered us donuts. The rooms were very clean and the hotel was quiet. Looks like have a nice breakfast that includes a waffle machine.

We stayed 12/23 to 12/26. We were warmly greeted by the staff when we arrived. The lobby has comfortable seating and a beautiful stone fireplace. The common areas, hallways and rooms are "squeaky Dutch" clean. Breakfast is exceptionally good for a large facility. The extra touch was, on Christmas morning, under our room door was a note from Santa saying,... More

I come up here for seminary intensives and this is the place to stay. It's close to everything, very friendly staff, great breakfast, and very clean! The beds are a little stiff for me though but everything is so great. I love the view from our windows and the free wifi. Good job guys!
