  • 4.0.Fair

    Oops, made a mistake

    Not at all what I thought it would be. Pubic hair and other hair in the tub and on the floor. Nice staff but the hotel is old and needs updating. No hair dryer and no full size mirror outside the bathroom to use if the bathroom was occupied. The Breakfast left alot to be desired. The hours are 7a.-10a and by 8:30am they were out of milk, out of orange juice, and the lady said they had no more. How can you have a breakfast from 7am to 10am and not have enough food to serve all your guests? That's just wrong and poor management.

    Door would not close completely, the bathroom was atrocious. I definitely would not stay there again.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Not as pictured or described

    Got to the hotel and it did not look like the pictures online at all. Went inside and had to wait a while to get our room keys. Decided we would check out the room and try to make it work. The room reeked of cleaner to the point it made my family and I sick. We had to leave and stay at another hotel in that night. Upon checking out I had to wait a while again. I went to the lobby bathroom and it was disgusting it had things smeared on the wall. The front desk manager was extremely rude when I explained why we were leaving.

    Need to be more professional

    I was never offered any receipt. I asked to pay in cash and they charged my credit card before I arrived. After I checked in they kept calling me back to check out because they got to have me sign papers. Give my vehicle info

    Great Stay

    We enjoyed the stay and would stay again. The room was excellent and gave us a great river view. Just wished that the balcony over the river was bigger.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Great location. You can tell it is an older building but they have updated the rooms. Only issues we had: they need to have a heavier blanket on the bed. The two blankets that are on the bed are basically two sheets. It got a little cold while we were sleeping. No closet in the room or an extra mirror in the room either. The bathtub needed to be updated a little bit as well. You could feel the middle of the tub "sink" a little bit. I would say, it wouldn't be my first option, but if everything was booked up, then I would stay here.
