“Ignore unfair reviews.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

This hotel received some false reviews and it bothered me enough to share.

The staff are top rate / first class and extremely nice.

The hotel has a new hot breakfast that's worth waking up for.

The rooms are spacious and beds very comfortable.

Parking is free. Has internet / Wifi / Hot Tub / Swimming pool / Movie Projection Area. Free coffee 24/7

Hmm....definitely one (if not the most) welcoming hotels on the Island.

The manager Pam is phenomenal...she was or perhaps still is Mayor in her home town. She is respectful and maintains a very homely feeling around the staff and hotel. She really cares about people and does her best to help them.

Pets are allowed with notice / possible pet fee?

Highly advise you stay here. Try it and I promise you will not be sorry. Please write a review if you stay. Thank you.

Myself and the wife came to the island for a weekend stay . Not having reservations we pulled into the hotel and the price was just right for the wife and myself . The front desk staff was supper friendly we got a king size jac. suite the room was really big . Being friday night we were right in the action of the night the fireworks were 3 blocks away but you could see them from the pool . Which was awsome cause we did not have to go very far to see them . Then there was a movie on the wall above the pool for the kids it was great to see that . In the morning there was a breakfast that was eggs and sausage and waffles and coffee, juice , bagels and other things . The morning of our check out the front desk staff was as friendly as the affternoon staff . All together this was a great spur of the moment trip we well be back to this hotel soon . Thanks for a great Stay !!!!!!!

Worst hotel I have ever been at never ever come to it. This hotel needs that show hotel:impossible like forreal everything is falling apart there are big nasty roaches. The tv isnt the greatest at all the vending machines are all out of order our room had like bacteria looking stuff growing on the ceiling ill health hazard!!!!!! The towels are nasty it looks like they don't even wash them. This hotel needs remodeling or don't even come to this hotel at all. For breakfast there was lady that checked our tickets to eat breakfast(ridiculous) she was so rude. The doors are messed up , I have been to older hotels than this one and I have never had any problems like the ones I experience at the inn !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We checked in late after driving 6 hours to attend Anime Convention, Banzaikon. We are not too happy with its cleanliness, and the smell of the rooms was horrible. We notified front desk who moved us to another room without anything difference from first. We're very disappointed with the beds as well as beddings and towels.Tables are even dusty.

Hallways are noisy and you can hear your next door guest talking. A/C is unbelievably loud. Service is not too great, they let you wait and ignore you. Very worned out decorations. Will never recommend to family members and friends. Not a very great place for FAMILY.

Room Tip: We don't think there's a GOOD room in this hotel. Try to scout for other hotels in the area...
