We had a good stay at this hotel. The rooms looked great and had a refrig and microwave. The best part was the comfort of the bed--great mattress! The A/C ran extremely cold and it was hard to control the temp--we actually turned it off for awhile to warm up. I like a cold room though so that was just... More

I would recommend this hotel to anyone. Our stay was excellent. The staff worked hard to make our stay very comfortable. The price of the hotel was extremely wonderful especially due to the fact that the hotel had everything to offer, like a pool, a fitness center, a variety of food for our morning breakfast, in which I would say...

Good quality room and décor - overpriced for this town and number of hotels available in the area. Had to wait at front desk for check-in. Tried to call my daughter's room several times and the phone was not working

The staff was super friendly and helpful. Room was clean and hotel was very well kept. Only thing that could have made this hotel better would be if they kept water stocked all day like they do their coffee. Other than that, absolutely no complaints!

We traveled to Marion for our son's national SCTP tournament and booked our room online. After a hot day outside, we needed a clean, efficient, hassle-free room to return to and we were not disappointed. We enjoyed the breakfast each morning, made use of the gym and pool, and all with ease. Fresh towels, courteous staff, and overall air of... More

The pool could have been heated or heated more than it was, as well as the hot tub rather low temp and not much jet pressure. The control for the hot tub was on the other side of pool area and it was just on/off.

Not only does this hotel smell bad but I found two dead bed bugs and blood spots on the sheets of the pull out couch. This was in the jacuzzi sweet so I can only imagine what the other rooms were like. The manager downplayed it and no refund was even given. I will not make the mistake of staying... More
