We stayed here on a whim for one night. The hotel is nice and clean. Our room had a great view overlooking the river. We also had a small kitchenette, including a small fridge and microwave. It is convenient to everything - right on the main strip. Breakfast was decent, offering grits, scrambled eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy, pancakes, cereals...

Found this location last minute. Not sure if I was doing something wrong but it never came up under any Kayak/Tripadvisor/Orbitz/etc. searches, I booked it directly through their website. This location is fairly new so that helped a lot with cleanliness but overall was very nice. Pool area was nice but we didn't use it. Had arcade as well. Location...

My daughter and I enjoyed our stay there. We didn't stay near the pool because it's loud but the rest of the hotel is quiet. Breakfast was good except for the pancakes which were rubbery. The park setting out back was wonderful. You could feed the ducks, geese and pigeons!

The hotel itself is very nice except our bathroom door looked like someone tried to break into it as the knob was loose and wobbly and there were dents in the door. The grounds were very nice and the walkway along the river was wonderful. I would stay there again.

We have been to this hotel approximately 10 times in as many years. We love the location of this hotel. It is in the heart of everything. The only thing that could make it better is that things need to be updated. The rooms are looking a bit worn.
