Terrible. I would never stay here again. Total review of zero. This was a very bad experience. I do not know how a chain could operate under the circumstances. I think I will report this to the hotels boards and the better business bureau.

Welcoming and pleasantly better than i expected. Excellent value with awesome staff. Byo breakfast, though....the one provided needed more variety and condiments.... Over all, i was comfortable, slept like a baby, and had every need met with a smile. Felt almost..idk..neighborly.

I reserved a non-smoking room but was given a smoking room. Had the guy at the desk bothered to ask, I could have been given a non-smoking room because the place had plenty of vacancies. It took 2 requests and many hours to finally get cups and glasses so I could at least get a drink of water. I find... More

Thank you Jackie for making our stay great! I will back because of Jackie. We used a coupon and were satisfied with the room and service. The walls are thin so we asked to be put away from other people.

Front office line-staff committed to problem solving. Cable stations need to be upgraded. Surprisely, this hotel did not have a complete lineup of basic cable channels. Too many reboot interruptions too. Door-to-door transportation to the hospital is very convenient.

I have stayed at this hotel regularly over the past 12 years. It is located within 3 minutes walk of a shopping complex with CVS, Harris Teeter, Bueger's Bagels, and so on. I like the ease of purchasing groceries and being able to cook in the room. I am sorry to report that this hotel has been in steady decline... More
