Lobby and hallways were nice. Opened the door to our room and it smelled of cigarette smoke masked with some sort of air freshener. It was not pleasant. I should have looked at the room description better but it didn't have a small fridge which was disappointing. Beds were comfortable, carpet had many stains on it and you could tell...

Stayed here for 6weeks on business and enjoyed my stay. Michelle and the rest of the front desk staff was awesome and attentive. Hotel is a little worn but well kept at the same time. The hotel is very busy but the staff is always pleasant.

My recent 2 night stay for business was outstanding. Amanda, the manager, was very accommodating and Linda at the front desk as well. Beautiful facility... spotless rooms and a great view of Lake Erie. The restaurant was excellent and I took advantage of their Tuesday night wing special (12 wings for $5). I will certainly stay again in the future...

Convenient but not very clean this time. Shower especially was dirty. Love the restaurant!!!!!!! Great food!!!! Rooms are over priced. People are friendly and helpful. Business may not allow us to stay again due to the price.
