“A Diamond in the Rough”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2012

Yes, previously this place as a dump to stay at but it is going through a major renovation. In the past week I stayed there twice. The first time in an old room, which was clean but terribly outdated and poor mattress.

The second time I stayed in one of the newly renovated rooms which was just perfect. When I opened the door, I was pleasantly surprised by the renovations! The room was so lovely I even took my shoes off as did not want to get the new carpeting dirty! Very contemporary look and the beds were so comfy! You will not be disappointed at all if you spend the night in one of the new rooms!

New lobby is comtemporary and it sure is a welcoming feeling when you walk in with the newness and cleanliness, including remodeled lobbby bathrooms.

Probably could use more food choices at the hotel from the breakfast. I did have a waffle and was tasty.

It will be a five star rating above when all the rooms are completely renovated!

Room Tip: Rooms on the first floor are more convenient if you do not like doing stairs to the second floor roo...

We stayed at the hotel twice in the last few weeks. The hotel is undergoing major renovation and the rooms we stayed in were all updated, clean, redecorated and very nicely done. The prior reviews are pre-renovation. I even liked the lobby area - very modern and nicely refurbished! So, don't let the old reviews keep you away.

before booking, i had checked online reviews. almost all of them rated it poorly. the hotel is under new ownership, and those horrible reviews had to have been from the old place. we stayed in room 214. it was sooo clean! smelled clean, bright white linens, super comfy bed with extra pillows, larger mirrors with nice, tastful decor. most places i dont want to take off my shoes, but the ceramic tile and carpet were very clean. the lobby was amazing with white leather furniture, marble floors and counters. the desk staff was very helpful and friendly. the make-it-yourself waffles and ice cold juice were very tasty for breakfast! i would defenatley stay here again! very pleased:)
