I stayed here two months in a row, while attending a course at a local school. The first time, I went into the restaurant in the morning, for the advertised brunch, at 7 am. But none of the food had been put out. The wait staff was nil, and the host was completely unresponsive. Finally I flagged down one of...

Hotel staff (Gaylynn) was very accommodating and helped us to have a great stay. The rooms were clean. Stayed at this place for a wedding with the hotel attached and there was never a need to think of going anywhere else

This hotel had decent staff but is old and tired. Poor quality , expensive breakfast buffet. Musty, tired rooms/furnishings. Unreliable wireless internet. Currently looks like some renovations are underway but hard to tell. I felt like it was possible based on that smell that my room may have once been a smoking room (127 / 1st floor).

We spent a couple of nights in this hotel and other than the architecture were not impressed. The room was pretty standard. The cleanliness was acceptable with dust bunnies on the curtains and lacked amenities you would find in other hotels at the same price point, i.e. Microwaves and fridges. The shower was fantastic, but for older folks the toilet...

We rented out a block for my wedding and everything went very smoothly. Great property and very helpful staff. We also rented a ball room for a event on Friday night and it was very nice. Having the bar on site was a good addition for after the reception.

Attended an event in the conference area of the hotel which included a full dinner for 400 plus people. Admitting the fact that it is difficult to serve that many people well, the food was appallingly bad, inedible actually. The "steak" was a thin slice of dry prime rib, served with tortured asparagus and a twice baked potato that tasted...

We need to compliment Chef Michael Markiel for fantastic salmon salad he served us. Not only was the meal great for my wife and I, Chef Michael followed up by asking us if our meal to our satisfaction. He has an awesome passion for what he does and we greatly enjoyed our meal and conversation with him!! Great experience👍
