Large suite at a reasonable price. The suite was set up like an extended stay with fridge, microwave, dishwasher, pots and pans, etc. Large bathroom. Comfortable bed. Floor needed swept and the hallways had all the baseboards stripped off, like they are getting ready to remodel. Staff was friendly.

Let me first say thank you for your feedback on your recent stay at our hotel. Yes we have been doing up grads to our property new carpeting and should be done with the hallways in the next couple weeks. It was our pleasure to serve you and we look forward to returning back again soon.

Booked a room for my wife. Apparently the the hotel itself is adequate, but I found front desk staff lacking in customer service skills. I was scolded for not following their booking procedures properly, even though the procedure was nowhere mentioned when I booked the room. Next time I'll pay more if necessary to stay at a hotel where the...

I was thrilled when I was contacted by Ruthann, the Director of Sales for an opportunity to "partner up and become a lodging resource". I travel all the time and am an IHG spire elite member. We were coming into the area for a long term project and her call was perfect timing. Our project will be ongoing for two...

Booked this place based on ratings but have no idea how it got more than one star. From check in, staff was rude and indifferent , disorganized and apathetic. Room was dirty carpeting and broken bathtub staff refused to fix despite asking X 2. Told " we don't have maintenance staff" and she walked away. And they don't clean the...

This hotel was quiet, clean, and suite room was excellent. Kitchenette was fully stocked (except for coffee filters--the hotel was out! But they offered complimentary coffee in the lobby and we survived). This was our 2nd stay and we will be back! Staff at the front desk were all friendly. Will stay again!

Clean. Nearby to a lot of restaurants and shopping. Right off the highway. On and off easy. Room is a suite with a kitchenette. Can't complain. Needed a place to walk so we went to the mall. Are at Olive Garden. Paying at the table much simpler and easy. Cookies at the front during checkin. Friendly workers.

Has a office and kitchenette room is clean. Accomodations are lovely but it's our first night east of the Mississippi. From the west coast forward we have paid only a $10-$15 non-refundable pet fee. Here it's $75. I am unsure if this is normal in the east or just this town. Others nearby didn't allow pets or were as high...

Met the needs for the price, room was clean and nice, staff was friendly, room was quiet, surprisingly, forgot that extended stays are sometimes used as apartments. But overall, nice stay. Would recommend for a nice place to rest your head. Close to a lot of restaurants.

We were held hostage by the softball association because this was a stay to play event, and we had to stay at this hotel. They HOSED our group on our rates! We paid more for those crappy, dirty rooms than they charge at any other time. Not to mention there are virtually ZERO amenities. No breakfast, wifi doesn't work, and...

Traveling though the area and stopped here for the night. Nice property and staff was very nice. The hotel has some age and i think the room furniture could use some updating has wear. It is nice as always to have the option to make a quick bite to eat without going out.
