My room here was really clean, new tile & renovated room, nice bathroom. Really pretty. The manager was so very nice & I was relieved I could have my cat with me. Everyone was very polite/nice/friendly. I recommend this hotel. I stayed at this hotel on 5/7--5/8/2015.

The Family needed a hotel for one night, and got one....yet disappointed. The hotel is run down, all surfaces need either replacement, refurbish, everything! The paint, furniture, decoration, fixtures, flooring, bedding...all need to be redone. Moreover, I had to keep on asking for things...towels, etc. The Heat was not working right, and it was cold!!!!!in December....Howard would be very upset... More

It was a good stay. Bed was comfortable. I turned on the heat overnight and it was warm and toasty for a November night. The complimentary breakfast could have been a hour later--closed at 10 am instead of 9 am. I missed that, but I had breakfast after checking out at IHOP next door. It was alright. There was no...

We stayed here for one day. The place is good, the staff was very courteous. The hotel is conveniently located near many restaurants, mall and other entertainment areas. No frills, nothing fancy, but rooms were nice & the premises were clean. The swimming pool is really big, well maintained and water was warm.
