We have been here a year ago and it has had a make over. The room was very clean, comfy and spacious. The location is right in the middle of everything which is great. The breakfast was more than muffins and juice. So that was a pleasant surprise. My only complaint would be the air conditioner was good and cold...

This hotel experience was by far the worst one ever. The room apparently has had some sort of renovation and there was dust and other debris all over the carpet and floors. The carpet even behind the Tv stand was nasty (covered in dust). Also the internet did not work . And there was not enough parking during a busy...

That being said, this is not the worst place in the area that I have ever stayed. It was also far from the best. The room was clean (but I would not have walked around barefoot in the room), the bathroom was in serious need of an update, and the parking could use some help. The staff was very friendly...

We stayed here but were terribly disappointed. The room was smelly, dark and on our last day we were locked out before we checked out!!! We will NOT stay here again even though it is in a great location.

Don't stay here - that really says it all. This place is definite not a nice place to stay at all. The rooms are quite outdated. Even the "updated" ones are very very sad. There were 4 couples in our party and, though we booked together and had the same last name, we were in vastly different areas of the...

This was our 2nd time staying here. The only reason we decided to try it again was a lucrative Groupon deal. Lesson learned. Never again. It was my husband, myself & 17 yr old son. Stayed in rm 222. Nonsmoking. The smoke smell hit us as soon as we opened the door. Cigarettes. bleh. Too tired to ask for another...

My husband and I stayed there due to all the other hotels being full for the weekend. The outside of the hotel will definitely fool you. We stayed in room 331 and it was totally awful! The carpet needed a good cleaning, the toilet was broken, the tiles on the floor was broken and was a fall hazard, on the...

we stayed on the first floor in January 2017. it is close to any activity or restaurant you could choose. It was clean and the heater worked well. It is perfect for a place to sleep, watch a little tv, and to shower. So if you are on a busy vacation, its perfect.

We stayed here about a year ago and the manager gave us the groupon price since the groupon was sold out. Our room was awesome. We had a jacuzzi, fire place etc. Was very beautiful. So we decided to stay here again, and again, the groupon was sold out I called and asked if I could have that price since...
