    Great Hotel!

    We enjoyed our stay, rooms were nice. Disappointed they didn’t have a hot tub, but the pool was great, and it was warm!

  • 6.0.Good

    Good location for anything downtown. Bed was pretty uncomfortable. Be aware that parking is an additional $18.00 a day. And the restaurant did not appear to be open for food so you will have to go out for breakfast while you stay.

    Good stay

    The hotel is clean but the parking $18,day is expensive. We requested the quiet room on the first night was good but second night some noise from top floor. Also they did not let us check out late.

    Experience was poor due to parking situation and little things like one roll of toilet paper and no tissue. Hotel itself is very nice. Clean room and comfortable bed.

    Good comfort and poor service.

    The hotel was fine but the restaurant was not very good food and the bar service was very poor. Nobody was around to serve drinks. You stand in line to get drinks.
