The value of the stay was very good. Please note these rooms have no balconies which is ok with me. We stayed on the backside facing the river. The...

I hesitate to rate this hotel since I never actually stayed there. My reservations were for street view, so we could be entertained by the traffic and goings on. When we checked in they directed us to a room that faced nothing except another room about three feet away. The room was very dark and "felt like a dungeon", according...

We had a very positive experience at this hotel. Clean, Comfortable and the price was right. It is great place to stay for families and the property is well maintained. I will add that poolside rooms add a noise level in the evenings up to 11 pm. that may effect your sleeping. This did not really effect my family but...

ReneeA35, I am so happy to hear how clean your room was. Our housekeepers work so hard everyday to ensure that everyone has a clean and comfortable stay.

Just returned from a 6 night stay here. Rooms were a decent size. Very clean, awesome shower. Loved the river and fire pit out back. Only thing I could complain about was the wireless signal. We stayed in room 139 and signal for free wireless internet was terrible. Overall was an awesome stay. We would definitely come back.
