Reviewed 3 January 2017

Remember this hotel as a Jumer's and much of it looks the same. I had no issues whatsoever as indicated in some other posts. Room was very clean, everything worked great, and was nice to park just out side the room. Also enjoyed the seating patio area outside sliding glass door. Paid extra for the suite which is large and really comfortable. Only issue was I had hope for a slightly early check-in ... around 1:30 but desk clerk indicated it was no possible. Also checkout they couldn't figure out how to print the bill so they emailed, but the email never came. Still, I'd return because I liked the overall feel of the place and its conducive to family get togethers more so than some of the budget hotels with essentially no lobby.

Room Tip: Splurge for the suite was worth it.

The Front Desk Staff was nice and professional. Extremely old layout and Property. The Elevator was not working and the layout is a maze when trying to find your room. One huge plus is that it has a Restaurant and Lounge inside. They give you a coupon for breakfast, it is not provided with your stay. Wifi is very iffy. Had the hardest time trying to stay connected for FaceTime. Huge parking lot for oversized vehicles.

Thank you for your review. We are always are updating and making our hotel modern and comfortable for our guest. During your stay we were putting a brand new elevator in that our hotel hasn't had until now. Our breakfast is 10% off in our nice sit down restaurant every morning. We hope to see you again in the near future.

Pleasant accommodation with restaurant and bar. The restaurant is Indian but serve other food on request. Indian food is of a high standard. Also good choice for breakfast.
Breakfast not included in price but various options to suit all at a range of prices.

Very pleasant hotel. Friendly staff. Enjoyed our stay. Thanksgiving with family and we spent the night here to relieve the crowding a bit. So we didn't have dinner here but we would have liked to. We love Indian food and the restaurant in the hotel looked great.

I stayed here one night and attended a wedding reception at the hotel. All staff were very kind and helpful. The room was a large and clean with good Wi-Fi. I was surprised by how quiet the room was and by how comfortable the bed was-I slept great! I wish I had been able to visit the restaurant, as I heard very good things about it. The staff did a wonderful job with the wedding reception.
