This is a very nice property and it is a shame that it is not better taken care of. To start with, we requested and were given a "non-smoking" room. Upon entering the room it reeked of fresh cigar. A damaged smoke detector was found on the kitchen counter with fresh ashes in the bathroom sink and a partially smoked...

Absolutely atrocious service. There is no room service indeed. Some lights not working, one of the toilets is getting flooded. Been following up with front desk, who are extremely rude. Staying here for a few days for my business, but definitely will not recommend to anyone. Absolute mess and pathetic. Would have given ZERO rating, if it were available.

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...

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.
