My experience with this hotel was not bad, the complimentary basket was a nice touch.The desk staff was very friendly and had a sense of humor thank you Tisha. Now when I got to my room and it was not clean I was a little disappointed and when I returned to the desk Tisha made it bearable with her sense...

I put up my friend here for a night, and it turned out to be a really nice place. The lobby is really cool and the service is great. Very nice front desk. They gave us a generous hospitality basket with a lot of cool stuff. The place is a little "smokey", but it will do the trick for nice...

Not sure what is going on with this hotel's reviews but this hotel was awful. Our room was not cleaned between our 1st and 2nd night. No hot water. Breakfast was very limited, out of everything, had to wait on plates and forks and a place to sit. The condition of the shared spaces & parts of the room in...

Really awesome front desk lady, super nice. Lobby is cool with pretty good breakfast and coffee, has a really good vibe to it. The rooms too. It felt like you were the only one on the floor and was super quiet and cute. I think they're in the process of moving the old TV stands out of the room but...

I don't even know where to begin. This place was awesome! The staff was even better. Yes, it is an older building but the things we noticed were only cosmetic. Our room was beyond belief. The pool was perfect on a cold winter night. The breakfast buffet was better than most and it was constantly being restocked and checked. And...

Best Host Inn , it's like a secret and it's a kind of hidden. This place is far from a Inn, Like when you initially walk inn, you're thinking you're on the Plaza, the hotel is polished. The rooms are huge, with a huge Flat Screen, wherever you are positioned in the room,you will still be able to enjoy the...

We paid $64 including taxes, but agreed next time we'd pay an extra $10 to stay at a slightly nicer hotel. It wasn't terrible, but the smell really bothered us. Pros -Gift basket -Breakfast included -Large room with plenty of space for the king bed Cons -Funky smell (kind of dusty/old lady flowery/smoky) in the hallways AND room -Old red...

Ami made me feel welcomed and made me smile throughout the whole check-in process! My only complaint was that I reserved a King sized bed but didn't get one, I didn't complain because it was still comfy! I didn't get up in time for breakfast but will make that a priority my next stay! Keep up the good work!
