Stayed for 2 nights one weekend while visiting my sons. Calvin built this on to their campus several years back. The most exciting part of the hotel is the lobby area with big fireplace (they should put big chairs around so you can read a book and plenty of common area to sit and do work, read, or just get...

I stayed two nights for a business trip. Everything was clean, the staff were very friendly, and the breakfast was delicious. I really appreciated the quick and efficient way they handled check-in and check-out as well. Wonderful stay. Thank you.

The staff here is excellent. After two or three visits, some already knew my name, and they do everything they can to make your stay a pleasant one. The rooms are well set up, the beds are comfortable, and the wireless internet is fast and reliable. Breakfast in the morning is also a big plus.

I stayed here one night for a business meeting. The staff were very helpful in regard to making shuttle arrangements. I wanted to catch an early flight to avoid some bad weather. The young man at the desk was very accommodating and made arrangements to have the shuttle leave early (which he actually drove). The facility was very clean, very...

I stayed at the Prince Conference Center for 4 days and 3 nights for a professional conference. All meals (except one dinner) were provided by the Center. Meals are very balanced, with plenty of options for any dietary needs. It is a value-style hotel, consistent with what you might find at a Best Western or Holiday Inn. However, the cleanliness...

Due to flight delays I didn't get in until 1:00am. Normally they pick you up in a van but due to the late hour they said to take a cab and reimburse me. Room was clean and nice size, hot breakfast in the morning. My class meets in a meeting room there and the lunches and snacks are excellent. They...

We stayed 12/23 to 12/26. We were warmly greeted by the staff when we arrived. The lobby has comfortable seating and a beautiful stone fireplace. The common areas, hallways and rooms are "squeaky Dutch" clean. Breakfast is exceptionally good for a large facility. The extra touch was, on Christmas morning, under our room door was a note from Santa saying,...
