“Great Place to Stay”
Reviewed 22 March 2012

This hotel is in the perfect location with restaurants and attractions within walking distance. The hotel has an elevator to get to the upper floors. The lobby is very clean and inviting as the breakfast room is large enough to handle a crowd. The rooms are clean and comfortable with flat screen televisions, high speed internet and very comfortable beds. The showers have good pressure and are newer. There was nothing I didn't like about this hotel.

We stayed for one night on the way through. The hotel was nice. The location was handy for us as it was really close to the zoo and some shopping. The breakfast was good. We didn't get a chance to use the pool.

Stayed here for a one night stop on the way from ND to TX. The property was hidden from the main highway which was nice. However, the "high speed internet" left much to be desired. The instructions were to connect to the "strongest signal" and follow the prompts. Even with doing this, the highest download speed I ever got was .2 mbps. I connected my phone to tether with its 4G LTE and got MUCH better speeds than the free wi-fi. Wireless aside, there were a couple of other issues. The hallways were loud. I had a hard time getting to sleep from the people coming in at all hours of the night from the casino located behind the property. The bed was decent, nothing special. Breakfast was lacking some of the choices you'd expect from a hotel breakfast, but was adequate. Would I stay here again? Yes...but only for one night, and only if I could get the same price as I did this past time...not worth anything more.

We crashed here for a night as part of a cross-country road trip. Our room was fine for that, but I wouldn't go out of my way or pay a lot of money to stay here. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and the continental breakfast was decent. Customer service was friendly. Overall, it was very comparable to the mid-range rooms that I tend to stay in while traveling on business.

One note: after driving for 8+ hours, we were hungry and didn't want to drive far (or at all if possible) for dinner. There weren't many food options within walking distance, but there is a Famous Dave's BBQ down at the far end of the parking lot, which was exactly the type of place we were looking for after a long day in the car. It also seemed to be family-friendly if you are traveling with children.
