“Come a long way”
Reviewed March 10, 2014

We have stopped through a couple of times and most recent was last week. The Pool and Sauna have recently opened and looks great. Last year they were doing renovations in the rooms and my trip this year showed lots of improvement. The rooms are very large and spacious, they have a racquetball court which my kids love. It is not a 5 star hotel hence for the price we pay, it is very clean and the rooms are exceptionally nice. We especially enjoy not having to carry our luggage up elevators as access to our car is right from our room. I have recommended this location to our corporate travel team for future stays.

Room Tip: We stayed in Rm 111

This hotel is the ideal location for sport teams playing in the Chatham/Kent Area. Our hockey team stayed at this hotel and it was the perfect location for us to really have a great team experience. The manager was excellent and very accommodating. We were given our own complimentary hospitality room to host a movie night and the manager provided the girls with popcorn. The pool was perfect for entertaining the team after a long day of games and the manager ensured that we were all well taken care of. I agree - the hotel does need some work, but the manager is trying to upgrade the rooms and hotel. It is a 25 minute drive to Chatham but it was worth the drive as this was a perfect hotel for a hockey or sports team. The rooms were clean; breakfast was provided; and the value was excellent for the incredible rate we paid.

Our hockey team stayed at this hotel this past weekend. The staff were amazing. Yes the hotel needs some work, but they are trying very hard to bring it back to where it should be. The staff were so accommodating. The kids were given the freedom to play mini sticks in the racquet court, which was amazing. They worked very hard to get the freshly painted pool back running for our group. This is a perfect hotel for a hockey team. The rooms were clean and breakfast was provided. Muffins, bagels, cereal, apples, juice and coffee. You can't compare this hotel to a big city hotel, you are not paying $150 or more per night! We've stayed as a group at other big city hotels and it was not fun. Our team had a great time.

Would think that being the only hotel within 45 minutes of a college town would be of a better quality. Would assume there should be a demand for weekend rooms when parents come to visit from a distance.
Renovations appear to be ongoing, but room was a huge disappointment.
Lobby was very presentable.
No breakfast available.
Shower curtains should NOT drag on the bottom of tub, unless they are laundered after each rental. Shower curtain rod should be much higher. Almost tripped on the shower curtain in the tub!
Overall cleanliness of the room was a huge issue.
Staff were very friendly.
