8.4.Very good.
  • 2.0.Poor

    I had to stay there for a week. So i asked for a room with a view. We had two rooms, looking over a parking lot. Next,no hot water then hot water after 10 min, then it lasted just long enough till you got in the shower,the final day extremely hot water. No food or coffee in the morning. The restaurant never opened up. we waited till 7:15a.m. nothing no staff. My window was broken held with tape. It was the wrong size for the original frame so there was a 1/2" gap for the air to come through. as i wondered why my drapes were flying around. Told staff, didn't change my room or even check on it. Extremely disappointed. Room 305

    Convenient & friendly

    I have stayed at this hotel many times before for conferences. This time it was conviently located near the hospital where I would be having surgery. This hotel is always clean, the front desk staff is always friendly & helpful. The rooms are comfortable & there is on site dining and room service.

    I've stayed here before. The location is excellent. The pool is very nice. It is a nice 3 star hotel, comfy bed an good cable. It is worth getting a room with a view. Parking is convient, an 10 bucks a night. Be aware they are renovating the upper floors. Noise starts about 9:15 am till late afternoon. I will stay here again.
