Great place, staff friendly, bar fun... sean and steven were great. Found everyone to be very nice and helpful. They had entertainment in the bar that night and he was great. Played music I could relate to and found myself wanting to hear more. The atmosphere was great, some folks lplaying pool, hotel close to my business meeting and did not need to worry about a thing.

Very nice... pet friendly, clean, professional staff. Hotel is kind'a Ikea-ish but very practical and with well laid out rooms. Space is used very economically but comfort is not sacrificed! No extra frills that are usually not used. Basics, but frills available if you want. We normally request "no housekeeper services" for a two or thee day stay, here they give a voucher for their snack area "for going green". Nice touch. Supplied pet bed, bowels and snacks.. 4 l4gg4d kids liked that...

Room Tip: Ask for a room in back... away from parking lot.

Great location not too far off of the main highway, and right across from a town center with a variety of restaurants and shopping. The staff was very friendly and went out of their way to ensure comfort. Sean and Mike in the lounge bar were great and provided us a lot of information. This was the perfect stop to break up a long road trip.

Room Tip: If the pet friendly option doesn't suit you, just ask during reservation or when you arrive to b...

As noted by other reviewers, the rooms are austere but functional. My room was comfortable, but my sleep was disturbed by an intermittent mechanical humming (not the heating system, which was also not quiet) and people talking and a dog barking. The front-desk staff were very friendly. My checkout email showed an incorrect $1 charge for food/beverage. The staff promised to remove the charge and email me a new receipt. The "corrected" receipt was identical to the original and a follow-up email to the manager was ignored. Eventually fighting the false charge on principle is no longer worth the effort. I have, however, been bombarded by their corporate office to complete a 10-minute survey.

I'm becoming more and more of a fan of hotels like the Aloft. They focus on providing the necessities in an attractive, functional, yet comfortable way.

Besides the efficiency, we chose the Aloft because they allowed pets and we were in the middle of a road trip down with our dog. Due to weather and traffic, we arrived 3 hours later than expected. We called the hotel and the desk clerk was nice and helpful and let us know they would have a room ready for us.

We ended up arriving at 2am. The service couldn't have been better. They hey handled the check-in efficiently and got me to my room quickly.

Here is where my only complaint lies... we noticed the dog kept sniffing under the bed. We looked under the bed and found a half-eaten sandwich in a plastic container. Normally I would have complained, but we were too tired and the sandwich was in a container versus just tossed under the bed. Still, a let down and dark spot on an otherwise nice stay.

In the end, I'm happy with the stay. The people were great and the service was great. I am disappointed in the room cleanliness and that's what keeps them from the "5 dot" rating they would have otherwise deserved.

We found this hotel to be noisy with people yelling during the night and dogs barking day and night. Bedding was uncomfortable with a
stiff comforter and overstuffed pillows. Lighting in the room was weird.

The service I was given! the beautiful rooms! and the help was second to none! Karla Pietras is such an amazing Manager and helped with getting the group discount for our families coming in from WI, FL, & Dominican Republic, for the surprise proposal, the Bridal Shower providing us with the "tactical room" and then for the Wedding a few months later was so amazing!! We cannot thank her and her staff enough for the help and commitment to deliver what they promised!!!! Being with us, helping from day one makes us feel like she is part of the family! Karla we thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Love Luis & Lindsey Perez!!!!
