Cordova, United States
Reviewed 20 April 2017

The hotel wouldn't come up to do online reservations however when I called the staff was extremely helpful. The room was clean. The staff was friendly. The only thing I seen was wrong is the ac/heat unit didn't work properly and we were already settled in and didn't want to move rooms so we didn't report it.

The staff was very helpful. the facility was clean and inviting. We would definitely consider staying here again. We did not partake of any of the other amenities as this was a very short trip.b ut the staff made it very easy for us to do what we had to.

Room was very clean and comfortable. Location is next to the college. Parking is limited. The staff is very helpful and getting checked in and out is easy and quick. The downside is the people who hang around the entrance and the parking lot after 9 PM. There are a few folks that were just outside the front door asking...

Great customer service was provided during check-out. Basic hotel and amenities with a fairly clean room, comfy bed, need better pillows though. Free breakfast, parking, and wifi, although wifi strength wasn't strong in our room. Depending on employee, some might not recognize BW elite benefits, but the ones that do made me felt very welcomed. Overall, no complaints during our...

The only thing I didn't like about the facility is the parking on the back of the hotel, but that's not a big deal if the weather is good, under a winter storm it's a different story. Also there was an annoying pipe tapping like sound coming from the wall every 30 minutes. It sounded like someone was knocking at...
