The website boasts an update to their facilities recently and you can tell it was only in strategic areas like the lobby and outside common areas. The rooms are late 70's dorm style and a bit of a shock to someone who travels regularly for work. A quick Google search will show that the facility was intentionally built to be...

Held a small two day marketing retreat and everything was great. Kelli Mueller was wonderful to work with in planning and executing the details of our meeting. The staff was pleasant, food delicious and guest rooms clean and comfortable. It was the perfect environment for our group to get away from our busy schedules and put strategic plans in place....

I was greeted promptly and courteously when arriving at the front desk so my first impression was great service! I had a very good experience with the facilities accommodations for hosting large groups of people attending an educational event. The ballrooms and breakout rooms were spacious. The dining and entertainment provided on-site was excellent so there was no need to...

This was my first time at this location. We were there for a work seminar for 3 days. This once was a training center for a large corporation and the rooms reflect that they are there for convenience, not comfort. The rooms are very small compared to most hotel rooms, and while I had no problem, my co-workers thought the...

I spent most of the week here for a corporate meeting. The only "bad" was that the rooms are clean and well maintained, but small - think more like dorm rooms than hotel room. My room had a bed, two nightstands, a large desk that took up the left side wall, and a flat screen TV on the bureau. The...

Several classrooms to host a multitude of classes. Projectors are provided, with screens. Guest rooms galore. The food is great, with a nice variety and desserts! A fitness center and a bar for an evening drink.

"The National" might be the only of its kind. This facility is home to several public and private trainings. You might meet people from major telecom or defense companies, or perhaps you'll meet employees of the government. Some people are there for months, others for weeks. The staff and management are attentive and kind. I had an issue with room...

Dear Trailheaders: You get it! It’s all about getting outside of your bedroom and reaching across the hallway or aisle to meet someone new. So glad you took part in some of our activities. Often this is the only time you have to relax. Thank you again for your fine input and you are welcome back anytime!

Wow, thanks tonyperkinson! We do hope to see you here again. We have made many upgrades and changes in the last two years and are delighted you noticed and enjoyed these changes. Yes, we are a meeting facility; not a hotel and we’re glad you understand the difference. Thanks again.

As part of a small quilting group, I have been enjoying the facility for over fifteen years. We have seen many improvements over the years, but yes, we still take wrong turns from time to time :) The place is huge, and our meeting room varies, so everything looks familiar. We always have a large room with lots of natural...
