Im in the army and barely see my family. I made a reservation for my fiancee to come up and visit. After she read the reviews we canceled the reservation well within their 24 hour advance notice. Told that it was cancled and would not be charged I found that they did charge me. I tried speaking to the manager... More

The only thing that kept us here is being between houses and the maids were nice. The people at the desk assume and charge after charge after charge. We added one additional night to our stay and they held up close to seven hundred dollars with fees and charges. I added one night and the owner assumed that we were... More

I recently stayed here for the night on my way through Watertown and found it to be quite nice. My room was recently renovated with very comfortable beds and a flat screen TV.

I am a hotel manager and my brother in law is in the army, so we spent Chrismas day in Watertown with them. I work at a high end hotel so I have high standards for staying in a hotel.

The place is currently under construction, changing owners by the looks of it. If you are planning on staying for multiple days go elsewhere, the hammering and construction work will make you go nuts. It is also true that they do not wear uniforms but they are somewhat professional. The rooms are pretty big with the oldschool CRT televisions. Also... More
