Passing through and looked through this site to see ratings. The hotel was nice, lady at front desk was very friendly. The room was clean. My only complaint and this had nothing to do with the hotel...the people next me where loud, fighting and slamming doors for hours. Finally around 1 am the noise stopped.

The staff was most excellent! Made us feel right at home. The room was spacious and clean; however, the sheets were "rough" (for lack of a better word). They were in the process of remodeling, so had some noise from a jack hammer the afternoon we arrived. Not really a problem once we discovered what was going on. The lobby,...

The hotel itself seemed to be in good condition and the condition of the room was ok too- but it was not clean. There were hairs in various places in the bathroom, looked like a spilled red drink on the bathroom floor, dirt on some of the blankets/sheets, etc, etc. Would not stay here again, wouldn't recommend it, and unlikely...

Easy to find, good location with decent parking. Check-in was friendly and helped with suggestions for shopping and dinner too. Although located on quite a busy street the hotel wasn't noisy. Decent room, comfy beds, good shower, free wifi, nice bar. Had drinks & dinner in the bar which was decent and inexpensive.

The room was clean and nice. Comfortable beds. Breakfast is not included with the room, but we ate in the restaurant one morning. It was just ok. Staff was mostly nice, if not overly attentive. The waiter in the restaurant was very nice and helpful. No complaints really except that the pool cold and was not well stocked with towels.
