        Although not appealing, the location is close to the downtown. Staff is very friendly and helpful

        The hotel definetely needs a revamp. It's outdated and looking at price/quality I would not use this hotel again

        Excellent Showers! Very important after years of living in hotels for a previous job! Staff was attentive when we checked in & found our room not quite ready for us. Restauraunt was very good with reasonable prices. Pool was a very nice benefit. Enjoyed the fitness center also. Easy access to parking. Hotel was a good choice.

        Room was supposed to be clean & ready, but was not when we got to it. A little more attention to detail for the housekeeping crew. We got a dfifferent room right away which was very nice.

        As I was traveling with a small dog, this was perfect. The location was close to my activities and it was very clean.

        At first pool&sauna!!!!!! Very nice hotel, just love it. Comfy bed, clean room, location everything was great! Didnt try breakfast but it was for additional fee that usually means quality food in all hotels around the world. Love it!

        No one!! Great quality for small money

        Cleanliness. I've paid the same elsewhere and gotten much less. I'd be glad to stay there again.

        I thought the menu from the Sports Bar & Grill was a little limited. I had huge and unreasonable expectations. The salmon was fine. The grill staff were friendly and attentive.

        The bartender on the 11th, was very nice and polite. The food we ate was good. The shuttle to the concert was great and the driver was a lot of fun.

        It was a nice place, but really expensive. It will take weeks my check book to be back where it was before. I tried to use websites for deals and the cheapest I could get was over 200 dollars for one night.

        The service was excellent and the location convenient combined with the hotel shuttle services to downtown

        Food/dinner, breakfast choices within the hotel premises

      • Family with children

        Room was comfortable. Shuttle service was excellent. Only had to wait over 5 minutes once in 3 days. Staff was friendly and helpful.

        Service in restraunte was horrible. Food was pretty good though. Hotel was located next to interstate, so noise from traffic was very loud and constant.

        Restaurant staff was very friendly. Close to bus station, which was handy to get to where I wanted to go.

        Without transport, there was nowhere else to go for dinner.

        Really nice, clean room. No problem with other people who had pets.

        Friendly staff, shuttle drivers, housekeeping. The pictures on the website were not, however like the actually hotel. The rooms were much smaller and the hotel itself was rather old. I feel it was over priced and the restuarant food was of poor quality for the price. Very small rooms and tiny bathrooms, with loud fans. if the website was changed, this would have not been such an unpleasent shock! the pool and related facilties are very run-down and quite "ugly." over all the experience was not BAD, it was just disapointing, because of the way it is portrayed on the website.

        Too far out of the way for any site seeing. Taking shuttle everywhere is not revealed on website, people should know this. way too expensive for the age and size of the rooms...
