    A few updates could go a long way here. Room furniture is nice. Updating curtains, wallpaper and bathroom vanity/tile would be great. It was clean and fine. Nothing unpleasant about my stay. Dining on site available but not sure if walkable to downtown dining.More

    Excellent customer service at check in. Room was big and clean, had a microwave and mini fridge. Bathroom was small and outdated. Shuttle to/from event center was awesome and timely. Would stay here again.

    The bathrooms need a serious upgrade. The mildew around the shower stall was gross. The doors are wore out. Spa was green and slimy on bottom. Noise doors slamming with youth sports teams staying on all floors.More

    Parking is free if you are a hotel guest. There is a LARGE lot. I don't know where the arena is.

    There is no hot tub. The pool is a decent sized standard hotel pool. I would guess that it was originally outdoors, but was enclosed several years ago.
