We stayed here last weekend for a quick getaway and had a blast. The remodeled rooms are very nice. Love the lighted bathroom mirrors and nice clean showers. The beds were comfy also. We spent a lot of time in the pool. I like that it's a pretty large pool. Very friendly staff and great stay. We will be back!

We stayed on a Sunday night , got on the internet and got a $56 rate for a casino motel, it was clean, beds were comfy, quite, and was the best continental breakfast we have ever had, and the front desk was great at check in and out!

We stayed here in March as we were flying out very early the next morning. The hotel is being remodeled so we had to dodge painters and canvas taped to the floor.

I like the IHG properties so tend to prefer them. This HI was definitely at the top of the list for quality and cleanliness. Staff was friendly and nothing was missed. Airport shuttle was quick and easy. The room was large, sparkling clean and, having a sofa, a very nice place to kick back and simply relax. The bathroom was...

I got a decent rate on a nice sized king suite. The room has 2 tv's, a seating area with wet bar area that includes Keurig machine which I like. Overall the room itself was clean and comfortable. Great access to the casino if you like that kind of thing and to several on site restaurants, a gift shop, etc....

This hotel was a welcome surprise as it had nice room and many activities to enjoy. My room had a view of the river and was very relaxing. The casino was nice and the restaurant and bar was nice. The food and staff were very good and I will stay here again.
