This is a great hotel. It's well connected with all the highways. Staff is very courteous. They were ready to help with anything and were very prompt in responding to requests for extra towels or blankets. The pool has a life guard. Staff at Anthony's restaurant inside is very friendly and accommodate any changes to the menu. Overall a great...

Bottom line, the hotel is clean and the rooms have been recently remodeled. The restaurant has NOT and you feel as though you are trapped in the 1970s or 1980s....along with the bar. I tried for 25 minutes to order through room service and the phone just constantly rang. When I was forced to walk down to the restaurant, there...

I would recommend this hotel - it was comfortable and clean and for the most part quiet; I would suggest that they adjust the door closures so that they don't "slam shut" - that would be appreciated. I was very impressed by the very large indoor pool that was open until 9 pm.

Good to see this older hotel get an update. Rooms are clean and beds are comfortable. Staff was pleasant and helpful. When my brother realized he had forgotten his tie, he asked if there were a place to buy one, but since it was a Sunday morning, the staff said no. Then they said to wait while they reviewed their...

Clean hotel, easy to get to from airport by taxi, or they even have a hotel shuttle. The rooms were very nice, clean, quiet and the beds were very comfortable. The restaurant was not open so I ate in the bar. Nice setting and the Haddock was scrumptous! Pleasant bartenders.

Stayed here on business and was surprised to hear a barking dog in the room across from me. I called the desk staff who offered to move me. Judging from the other reviews, noise seems to be an issue for this lowbrow hotel. The hotel overall appears to be dated and in need of a "refreshing." A weak Holiday Inn....

This hotel was very clean and the staff extremely friendly and courteous. The food at the hotel's restaurant, Anthony's, was very good. The only negative issue is that the town itself was very quiet. Not much to do. We would stay here again if we are in the area again.
