My wife and I stopped here for the weekend while doing some scuba diving nearby at Mermet Springs Quarry. Our room was clean, comfy, and ready to go when we arrived. The staff was friendly and we checked in and out with ease. The breakfast (included) is pretty good and any empty selections on the buffet were filled quickly. We...

Don't stay here unless you have no other option! We just stopped in for a quick overnight while on the road but like others have said, the staff seemed put out. The hotel was full and couldn't get us a larger room so they said they'd get us a roll away bed. They were under staffed. There was a shift...

The hotel is not updated. We have stayed in many HIE and this is by far the oldest of them all. It feels a little dingy. Out too was really hot when we got in and turned the AC down, but it never really cooled off. The king suite we stayed in had a broken sofa bed so the kids...

Great rate, room, staff, breakfast, and service. Did not notice in office area, but hallways on floors wreak of mildew smell. The room I occupied did not have evidence of mildew nor smell of mildew.
