Reviewed 23 July 2015

Property is easy to find. Good internet. Staff is friendly. My only qualm is the pathetic and outdated parking garage. If you have a small car you will be fine. If you have a mid-size or larger it is difficult to make the turns from level to level.

Thank you for staying with us and filling out a review. We ask everyone to please be extremely cautious in the garage as we know it is a tight fit. We have recently installed lights and signs to try to make it a better experience but caution is necessary. We hope you come back again the next time you visit...

Stayed here for two days. When I checked in they make you sign a 0 tolerance policy for partying. Clearly that was not upheld as the room next to me was going hard until 3 am. My air conditioner sounded like an Apache helicopter. I opened up the drawer to put my clothes in it and it looked like some...

The Red Onion has a great menu, everything that I ordered was great. You must get by the bar for a drink or two with Barb. THANKS BARB YOUR GREAT!!!! THANKS...

Top floor view of Memorial Stadium and free beer and snacks during manager's special 430-600pm. The bartender Barb is legit, she wouldn't let our glasses get empty. I would probably live here full-time if I could.

Spend many evenings at the bar with business discussions and have always enjoyed the friendly staff. I have always had great food; salmon recommended. Comps to Barb and Lisa for great service - they are always friendly. Not to take away from the other staff members as they are also excellent. They make the hard work days worth the visits!
