Came up with BFF's. We got 2 rooms in the courtyard side. Rooms were clean, staff was so helpful. They have a River Walk & fire pit. What a great way to end a day at the fire pit. We" LL definitely stay here again & recommend it to friends.

We came to town for a Car Show. Hotel was in a decent location. Would liked for it to have access to a red light so we wouldn't have to fight to get in and out of parking lot. Other than that it was a great stay. Rooms were clean, comfortable beds, hot water. The pool was constantly crowded but...

The room was clean. A little small but clean. We were in the pool area and it was loud the entire time the pool was open. Breakfast was ok. Had better but had worse. Parking is kind of difficult. They do have a nice walkway Ali g the river.

We stayed here our second night and wish I had stayed both nights here. Staff very friendly and accommodating to our needs. Our room was very quiet and comfortable. Beds were awesome and warm! Pool very nice and warm and hottub was ok. Could use some work on the jets but was relaxing. Can't believe what a difference between hotels....

Let me start by saying the location is great. The breakfast was also good with a variety - eggs, biscuits, gravy, cereals, yogurts, juices. The beds were comfortable. I expected more out of the rooms. They were nice, but had a little bit of a smell. The kitchen, bathroom area wasn't very big. I also think they need more elevators...

This is awful don't know how they get good reviews. Noisy can't sleep small rooms and staff makes you feel like they are better than you. And the thrugs and smokers are really bad. If you want a good night's sleep keep looking unless you have kids they will love the freedom that they have in the pool area.
