    Great room but cramped

    The room was up to date, very clean but cramped. Breakfast was great. Very little storage space for clothing and other personal items

  • 2.0.Poor

    Worst guest service Ive received in years

    Room highly overpriced for the offering. Desk staff was completely passive/unhelpful/unconcerned and are put out by very basic questions. They make it clear they are doing the bare minimum and job as assigned, nothing more (including making guests feel greeted and welcome?). Upon check out i discovered I had left my eyeglasses in the room, the desk guy actually rolled his eyes at me when i asked for a key to go get them! Bizarre, cold treatment both on check in and check out. Note you should call ahead to confirm the location of your room is not in the annex building on the 4th floor if you have luggage as there is no elevator: nor is there door staff to assist you, and desk staff will not either. Incomprehensible.

    Good accommodations for the price

    Our stay was very pleasant. The breakfast choices were very numerous, and the staff was attentive. A negative was the need to refresh the hotel wi-fi every 12 hours.

    Staying at this hotel was a stop thru for my family and I, so it was only the one night. The room was great, beds very comfortable and plenty of room for the 4 of us and our luggage. Breakfast was good and free and the staff were friendly and helpful. I can’t comment on the area as we didn’t get out. They do have onsite parking for a fee

    Good breakfast but an average room

    The hotel was okay with an excellent breakfast. The room a bit small for two and somewhat old.
