My girlfriend and I booked this hotel last minute for a Halloween weekend trip and were basically just expecting a place to sleep. We were pleasantly surprised by how nice and new the whole place looked and felt. The rooms were clean and a decent size. Check in was really quick and easy. The only issue we had with this...

This should be 3.5 but cant do that. The rooms are nice and clean and well appointed except for the lack of a fridge, a big minus for me. Also the breakfast was not up to the standard I am used to so I went out for breakfast. Location is excellent and staff friendly, plenty of parking.

This hotel was excellent... The food for breakfast was good. The room was clean. More importantly, it was the extra things the staff did. We stored our luggage at the beginning and end of trip with ease. Michelle (front desk) was kind and considerate , even assisting us in getting packages mailed out. Thank you. Yvette

Room quality ok. Room was clean and well stocked. Air condtioning unit didn't keep things at a constant temperature. Room sometimes too hot or too cold. Excellent support from front desk. Parking is $15.00 per night addtional. Be careful when parking in the lot. Lots of blind curves.

A nice and clean hotel. Features better than I had expected. Clerks very friendly, willing to give suggestions for tourist attractions and offering directions. Comfortable beds, free breakfast, but not the best I've eaten.

We stayed here for one night before we took a cruise. It was nice and clean and had a decent breakfast. Staff was friendly and helpful, they were under construction at the time so things were a little unorganized but that's understandable when things are being moved around and what not. We spent very little time there so I don't...

Perfect for business stay and also for pleasure, it was in a great location within walking distance to convention center and many local attractions and shopping. I was greeting upon arrival with a goodie bag and a thank you card for my stay, the breakfast was very good no complaints there.I will for sure stay again.

Nothing fancy, but it is a great location, and I was struck by the staff, who were kind, genuine, and seemed to be treated with respect and decency. I was delighted and grateful for their real hospitality

I've stayed here a few times and always get consistent, friendly people and great rooms. I can't ask for more than that after 12 hour drives from Colorado. I don't like paying $15 a day for parking, but it's got to be easier and more secure than trying to find a street lot, if there even is one. Again, extremely...
