I stayed in this hotel for an overnighter and found it to be quite pleasant and comfortable but, this was during the middle of the week, so I'm sure occupancy was minimal and why I felt like I was in a library but, no complaints. Room was clean, bathroom was adequate size and the hot water in the shower was...

I was assigned a large two room suite. It was very spacious. Large and comfortable king bed. The adjacent room had a large sitting area, comfortable and spacious desk and a wet bar with microwave and fridge. All was nice and functional, clean and modern, well kept. The hotel has a restaurant on site, connected and accessible from within the...

The hotel was very clean. Staff were very friendly, even at 2am, when I arrived. The meeting room we were in, for my class, was just the right size and quiet. They served us coffee, muffins,and fruit for our snack, in the morning. The food was great at Alberto's Restaurant, inside the hotel. I had a great lunch. The staff...

Had an amazing service experience from the lady at the front desk. I wish I could remember her name though. She was outstanding. As a Gold IHG Rewards Club member I was upgraded to a Junior Suite which had a fridge, microwave and a large living area. The TV was very large! What a great surprise. The bed was comfortable...

What a great place. I've been in this area many times and never knew the hotel was located just off the Main Street. This hotels appears to be a bit older but it is in great shape and very well maintained. My room was clean and comfortable. The staff was very pleasant and gracious to deal with. The only downfall...

My husband's high school class chose this venue for its reunion. It was quite satisfactory with a large room and good service for the dinner. The staff welcomed us and gave us the special rate even though we had not used their code for our reservation. The breakfast buffet was not included, but was very nice nevertheless.

The hotel was clean and staff friendly. Room was quiet and bed was firm and comfortable. Hotel has a lounge and restaurant attached which makes it convenient, not too many choices in the area. The hotel is very out dated. The room rugs and wall paper in dire need of replacement. Major reason for the average rating.

This place was pretty nice. Friendly, helpful staff. Clean rooms and comfortable beds. One night during my stay they had rented out one of their convention rooms to a teenage party of some type.

Not bad. Larger banquet facilities. I wanted a king suite but it wasn't available. Room was larger and clean. Bathroom was roomy. Tub/shower made a terrible noise while using. Bed was comfortable. Courteous staff. A little too close to traffic for me. Nice restaurant. Reasonable food prices. Ten dollar breakfast buffet added to room price is a deal.
