Attended a banquet dinner here. No appetizers offered. It was a self serve meal. Two simple salads. Stewed type beef ribs of medium quality. Chicken just average, mashed potatoes too smooth to be from fresh potato, and salmon, again just okay. Salmon wasn't dried out. Dessert was individual pecan pies.

However, the owner has increased the price to where the quality and selection does not warrant the price. We would go every two weeks for the past 3 years.

Clean room, comfy beds, and good food in the restaurant. I stayed here 2 nights and was not disappointed. I was attending my son's wedding and their original venue got rained out. The staff at Crown Plaza was wonderful and let the photographers take the wedding pictures in the hotel itself. They have a beautiful waterfall that was a great... More

Ate breakfast here. Food was hot, typical buffet offerings, fresh made omelets, fruit, meats, assorted pastries. Attentive service and great for people watching as it is located in the open close to front desk.
