While the remodeling isn't complete, the lobby was still in drywall state, but the check in staff was excellent and the room was really just as good as any other 3 star hotel in the area. We weren't looking for any of the frills, but just a get away.

Construction still not complete - I had thought it would be finished after reading other reviews - but no! Nowhere near as good as previous owners. Bath/shower handle awkward and loose and if you wanted shower all you get was part shower and running water into bath at same time. No guide for facilities in room. First day they had...

By the time I got around to booking there weren't many available rooms for the night of the company picnic. We needed three for our family and luckily we found them here. The front desk lady was very courteous and found us three rooms close together, and even provided pizza menus so we could order delivery after our late arrival....

The workers at the hotel were really courteous and helpful. The hotel was being renovated so there was a combination of the country decor and the more modern clean decor. Across the street from Splash Lagoon about a 15 minute drive to Lake Erie. Now on to other things..while the bathroom was a bit more spacious than hotels of this...

Nice, clean, large room, comfortable beds, fridge and microwave all for a great price! Close to everything. The hotel was under a bit of construction while we were there but we were never bothered by it. Unfortunately we never made it down for the free breakfast but it looked lke there was a big selection of items .

Stayed Sunday night because my husband, and I took our girls to the beach during the day. This hotel was previously a Country Inn (man, did I miss the warm peanut butter cookies at the front desk!).

While the ongoing renovations detract from any impressive greeting or registration , our room was clean and nice. The single ice machine in the three story facility was broken the first night and our room had no towels. The staff was helpful getting both issues resolved quickly. We chose not to eat there due to the availability of quality food...

Stayed here for 2 nights and even though the hotel is going through some renovations, it never interrupted our stay. It has a nice little breakfast for the morning with the basics. The renovations when completed will make the hotel feel very modern. It is in a great location for shopping on Peach Street and about 50 minutes to Grove...

While it is undergoing remodeling it was a good stay. Other than about 10 minutes of noise one night I would have never heard the workers. The continental breakfast was par for a continental breakfast. Not great but not bad. I also heard loud children but with the location close to splash lagoon it can be expected. The beds were...
