The hotel was clean. The staff was very pleasant and accommodating. But the rooms where not cleaned everyday. I have been at a few hotels and that seems to be common. Although there were signs let know. Not here. What I didn't like is the garbage pileup.

The hotel is clean and well maintained, but a little dated. The front desk staff and the staff manning the breakfast area are friendly. Free breakfast selections are good and tasty. The hotel parking lot is easily accessible and it is an easy walking distance from East Hill Plaza which has eateries and a grocery store.

6/10 Good

1. There was no Member Welcome gift provided and although there were two people at the desk I had to keep waiting past 10 mts to get checked in. 2. Housekeeping for the second day did not replace towels or toilet paper or tea bags and when front desk was called they said no one was available and we need to ho to the front desk to pick this up. No one apologized for this inconvenience. 3. Breakfast area had no water , very few apples and hardly any tea bags during the day . Tables were very dirty and not cleaned frequently. Overall this Hotel Quality and Staff friendiless has dropped and is not worth the price tag.

Staff was pleasant. Carpet was filthy... wore socks, room was not vacuumed, bed sheets had hair under the pillow which leads me to believe it was not fresh, bathroom had peanuts in it... yes peanuts. Room 409 was extremely musty. Def not a return or recommendation.
