We decided to go to this property as a last minute stay before we welcomed our first child into the world. The hotel was clean. Didn't interact with many staff members but, most were friendly. The room was nice. The pool and spa were clean and nice. The bathroom in the room was the worst part. A few maintenance issues...

We had a company meeting at this Hotel and I can say it went extremely well. The Staff were very friendly and helpful. They have a restaurant connected to the hotel as the food was very good. The hotel itself needs an upgrade and more staff for the restaurant when they have big parties. The pool entrance is badly located...

Michelle and coworker were outstanding. they were business like, professioal and took care of us like we were family. If you need two hundred charac ters to tell how great these folks were you have a problem.

I stayed 2 nights at this hotel when visiting for a graduation. The hotel was pretty full. The parking lot sometimes only had a few spots left. Assuming the hotel was pretty booked I was pleasantly surprised with how quiet it was at night. The room and lobby were both very clean and I slept like a rock. The bed...

As a gold member of the rewards program I was very disappointed. No welcome as such, no welcome bag or bonus points. In addition the available amenities were not explained as far as fitness club, pool, or dining. In all the other HI properties I have ever stayed in, the showerhead was wonderful. This one was terrible. Thankfully it was...

Front Desk Personal are friendly and courteous. Due to not taking elevators (I do not like elevators) and only using stairs our room was changed from the 4th floor overlooking the lake to the 2nd floor overlooking the roof and air conditioners. Noise from air condition did not make for very good nights sleep. All in all I would highly...

Very nice hotel. Rooms were clean, but really damp feeling (it was very humid there) and the hotel was very modern. There is a Omaha Steakhouse there at the hotel, which did have breakfast for a cost, but there was no complimentary breakfast or coffee in the morning. The closest place was Another Broken Egg, about a mile or so...
