The staff at this hotel were excellent. Everyone I encountered, from the front desk employee to the breakfast attendant to the cleaning individual- all were very warm and welcoming. There was a musty smell throughout the building. The rooms were just okay and in desperate need of updating. The bed was very uncomfortable and hard. The noise level in the...

They gave us a main floor room. It was clean and comfortable. The check in person was very nice and informative. We would stay there again. The breakfast area was clean as well. The food choices were good and the coffee bar was always available.

I ended up paying $20 MORE PER NIGHT than the hotels regular rate! Trying to resolve this issue after receiving my credit card statement resulted in being directed to...

The Staff and hotel were great. The hotel was very busy and completely booked but you never heard any noise. It rain very heavy the last night and I never heard a sound. The breakfast staff continued to ask if we needed anything and if the food tasted good.

Hotel had quick elevators. Located off main road with plenty of parking yet quiet. Although I did not utilize, the indoor pool area looks like it belonged in Europe. Wall lined with wood looked very nice! Staff was friendly and helpful. I had late checkout which worked out well. Comfortable beds, HVAC worked well as did the internet. Up to...

The rooms are very clean, the staff were great the breakfast is very basic. The doors to the room need sealing around them the noise from the hall is loud and the gap is so wide that the noise and light stream in. The doors also bang constantly and loudly.
