Not bad at all
Overall room was worth it, only thing is the walls can be thin, can hear other doors close from neighboring rooms but overall it's not bad to stay at, service is great very friendly, and for those that like wine they have local artist playing live music and offer for a time period during the performance free wine. The onsite restaurant is okay Service could be better, would suggest the restaurant/bar next door Miller's Rest which is great

The first room that I was in was extremely noisy and loud. I could hear everything coming from the hall. Luckily, Roumel contacted me asking if there is anything to make our stay more comfortable. I explained that noises at 7am on Saturday were not pleasant. He apologized and provided us another room on higher floors and that helped. I enjoyed the second room.

We were robbed, front desk shrugged
My husband and I drove into town for a weekend getaway. We arrived much later than anticipated due to some bad weather, arriving at 1am. The man at the front desk informed us that their parking garage was closed for the evening — hmm, what hotel offers parking where one’s vehicle won’t always be available? —he suggested that we park on the street, BUT we would have to move our car before 7am in order to avoid a ticket. I’m 6months pregnant, my husband begins unloading the car out front while I tend to the few bags I could carry. We had a full car, not once did the man at the desk offer a hand or so much as a luggage cart to help us out. My husband was done unloading by about 2am and parked a half block away, leaving a few items in the car tucked away, hoping they would be OK. It should be noted that there were hookers and lots of homeless hanging around this neighborhood. At 6am, he went to the car to move it and our window had been smashed and the few remaining items in the car had been stolen. Upon discovering this, we went to the front desk and told the staff (new set of people at front desk) what had happened. ZERO concern or apologies, just shrugged like it happens all the time (which PS it does in this neighborhood according to the cops). Could have all been avoided, 24 hour garage about a block away that we could have been informed of by staff. Walls are paper thin, rooms old and not super clean. Vacation ruined by incompetence more than anything else.
