I have traveled worldwide since 2002 and this is one of the best facilities I've had the privilege in which to lodge. The customer service is excellent, the rooms are in very good to excellent condition. The work out room has up to date equipment that makes working out enjoyable (private tv screen on each device). The breakfast features the usual as well as homemade oatmeal instead of the instant packets, a variety of fresh fruits and yogurt flavors, types and sizes. I highly recommend this for business travelers and families alike. This site is located within walking distance of several restaurants and shops, (including mass merchants) without having to cross a major thoroughfare.

Hello and thank you so much for taking the time out of your busy schedule to comment on your experience. I'd love to hear about the 'memorable impression' our valued team member made on your experience. Even better if you have the name so I can be certain to recognize that individual.

My friend and I stayed here while attending our 40th class reunion. The hotel was very quiet--no loud outside noises or roads nearby. The hotel was exceedingly clean and the rooms were soundproofed to the point of us wondering if anyone else was on our floor! We didn't stay for breakfast, but the dining area looked quite spacious and well-appointed. Plenty of parking available, too.

Each time I visit the B/N area this is where I stay. Great hotel. Great location. Close to ISU. Breakfast is yummy. Staff is great. Every time I stay here, Jen at the front desk checks me in and she's great. Says a lot about the place if the same people are still working there year after year. They know quality and treat their staff good. Would recommend to anyone visiting the area. Also, love the lobby remodel. So fresh and modern. Can't wait to stay here again!

Hello and thank you 'dlunz' for taking the time to share with the world your experience with us. The team strives to be the best and it seems we lived up to this billing recently. You hit the nail on the head in describing Jenn, she's great and we are fortunate to have her expertise.

Great customer service and clean, updated rooms. The breakfast was good with lots of different options. The complimentary beverage bar was also greatly appreciated. The fitness room and pool area were both clean and well-maintained. The location is very convenient to local attractions, restaurants, and shopping. I had a nice, quiet 5-day stay here and would highly recommend it. No complaints whatsoever. However, it gets lots of business travelers thanks to State Farm, so book well in advance.

Room Tip: Book well in advance due to lots of business travelers

My compliments. It was a very nice place to stay. Clean, quiet, helpful people, easy parking. The breakfast was fresh and tasted good. They had everything I needed in the business center, nothing second rate. This was my first stay at a Hamptons and I will be back
