It was very nice. Clean rooms and a full kitchenette including a full refrigerator. Location was great with the hotel being right next to the mall. The patio area in back was really relaxing except for all the mosquitoes. Would definitely come back!

Stayed here for 5 nights in July. Had to switch rooms due to humid feeling, bad smell, and AC not working at times. Dryer did not even dry my underwear and had to go to laundromat to dry an entire load. Housekeeping some days came as late as almost 4pm. Upon arriving home after my trip I noticed several brand...

The potential is there but won't be back anytime too soon! I have never seen a hotel with 2 single doors (no handicap access) to go through to get to the lobby. It was a constant struggle to open the doors with your arms full! Lobby area, backyard seating and new hallway carpet give you a first good impression until... More

Like i said, great extended stay style hotel. The bad reviews are by those who seem to expect 4+ star service and rooms no matter where they stay lol. Arrived late, but they were really nice, friendly, helpful, and laid back while helping me check in. They are going through the process of remodeling/upgrading with new local ownership. Which means... More

I had the misfortune of spending three nights at this hotel during a visit to Minnesota to see my daughter. The lobby had been freshly redecorated and they did a good job but that's where they stopped caring. The room was so musty smelling I had to keep the windows open the whole time. The decor wasn't updated since the... More

This place has the potential to be awesome for family travel. We are here currently. The rooms feature a full size refrigerator, stove, dishwasher, and pull out couch. The pool and hot tub are nice. The free breakfast is adequate, not great. The staff are AMAZING. Tonight the kids bought frozen pizza at the store thinking there was an oven... More

We rented the conference room for my daughter's birthday party and it was awesome! The space was clean and private. They also let me rent 1.5 hours to keep costs down! Super cool!
