Not as nice of rooms as it showed on the website. Our room was a bit outdated and behind the toilet needed to be scrubbed well. The room also had an obnoxious smell to it. Heard sirens all through the night - woke me up several times. The front desk staff was very nice.

The location was nice in historic downtown area, front entry and lobby area was nice. Nice lounge as well. The bedrooms left a lot to be desired, the first room the ceiling had large chunks fall off and could barely open the door, the second room had dirty linens on the bed.

This is our “go to” restaurant when we want to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, or just to treat ourselves a bit. Fantastic service as well as delicious seafood. No matter when we go it is great food and we are well taken care of! Highly recommend this particular restaurant.

Not the best place, room was damaged and not very clean. We were told to go here since it was closest to the venue of my cousin's wedding. I think that if it had some TLC, it could be a nice place. At this time, I would not recommend it.

This was a very nice room. The staff were very helpful to us and very accommodating. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone traveling through. It's a little ways off of the interstate (about 12 miles or so) but I guarantee you won't be disappointed. The parking is weir

Is this a pet friendly property?
I don't know about pets, but the hotel is below the standards of any Radisson I've ever been to. They need a serious upgrade of their facilities.
