Excellent service, allows pets, clean, meets all our expectations. We especially like the rooms that exit out into the parking lot. Minerva's is one of the best Restaurant in Aberdeen, try it you will like it a lot.

We stayed one night to attend a funeral. The total cost of our room including tax was $89.00. This was a family trip. I do spend a lot of time traveling alone for work, so I am always looking at safety and cleanliness. The hotel was undergoing a renovation. Could not believe how bad it got before they decided to...

I think it is horrible that the staff has to beg guest to give them praise for a raise. Management should be on site and overseeing staff so they know if the employees deserve a raise. Izzy McKittrick did a great job in the breakfast area. Not saying she begged us for a review but she should not have been...

Dear HLM530, Thank-you so much for taking the time to write a review. I want to convey my deepest regret that our attempt at clever word play was perceived as an effort to tie employee pay directly to guest feedback. These cards were created by our continental breakfast team in an effort to drive customer feedback regarding the breakfast experience....

Stayed for a night, enjoyed it. Breakfast was great. Hot tea, coffee. Choice of yogurt. A lot of options. Friendly staff, especially Izzy Mckittrick at the Caffè. Pool is nice and have kids play sets. Thanks.

My husband's grandfather passed away last week. I tried to cancel our room for Saturday with more than 24 hours notice. I had to cancel because the funeral was on Saturday and we would be unable to make the trip to Aberdeen. When I called the 1-800 number listed in the email. The woman who answered was polite, but insistent...

Dear Kim S. I want to sincerely express our condolences on your loss. In review of what I believe was your reservation it appears you booked through a third party. While these websites and agencies provide an exceptional value they come with specific criteria. The rate is lower but the caveat is that the room is non cancellable and often...

I checked in to this hotel at 6:30pm, and checked out by 9pm. First freaky incident, I get to my assigned room, and the door is wide open and all of the lights are on. I call the front desk to ask why this would be, and they said, as long as the room is clean, it should be fine,...

Dear amberhiler, I am so sorry you encountered as much trouble as you did. You may have noticed the extensive remodeling going on in the building and the fact that there was exceptionally inclement weather including strong winds and lighting during your brief time with us. Both of these factors made trouble shooting your specific concerns more time consuming than...

We spent several days here over the Labor Day weekend. This place was slammed with two wedding parties and several birthday parties.
