PETER, ca1 night trip
Good 6.0
Horrible customer service and totally unwelcoming attitude by the receptionist who is not interested in his work. I felt like he behaved like a typical racist. The guy in question is a lean white guy with less hair.

Fair 4.0
Its alright
It’s an older hotel but it’s clean. The housekeepers I found very nice but front desk was a bit disappointing. I had called before I booked to ask if they had a pool and on arrival found they didn’t have a pool it was their ‘sister’ hotel that did but we couldn’t use it. Housekeeping always got what we needed. They were very friendly and helpful. Also for those with young kids, there was a tub and shower which helped with bath night
Kalila, ca2 night family trip
Very good 8.0
Good for the price
It's a good hotel for the price. The room was small and cramped with simple furniture, some of which blocked the view of the outside. We had the mountain view room which opened up to the parking lot and you could see some of the mountain peak on the left. But we had a cute balcony with table and chairs. The location was great, right by the beautiful river. The parking is limited so we had to park at the affiliated hotel beside them. Our key stopped working on the third day and we had to go down to get a new one. So little hiccups along the way but overall, a good stay.

Exceptional 10.0
The hotel is old but well located needs a complete do over of everything
Melkon, ca4 night family trip
Fair 4.0
Beds are rock hard, There is no A/C, And you have to pay Daily to use the WiFi. I have never stayed anywhere and have them charge me for WiFi it always comes with the room. The Staff is great and very helpful.
Melissa, ca2 night family trip
Very good 8.0
simple but comfortable and overlooking the river
the hotel in general was good, for those who don't like luxury, like me. Simple and comfortable, but I think they could have invested better in the rooms. But I found the windows in the room we stayed in very nice, right in front of the river, in the morning had a wonderful view of the river. So that was enough for me, not to mention that it is close to everything

Ok for a one night stay...
Clean hotel. Customer service guy at the main desk seemed unhappy and bored. The room was very warm and the bed was uncomfortable.
