First, there was construction and I was not contacted about the renovations and there was nothing on the website stating they were under construction. Second, I book hotels by if they have a pool and continental breakfasts because I have kids. There were neither due to construction. I complained to the clerk that night and next morning. They did nothing....

While the remodeling isn't complete, the lobby was still in drywall state, but the check in staff was excellent and the room was really just as good as any other 3 star hotel in the area. We weren't looking for any of the frills, but just a get away.

Construction still not complete - I had thought it would be finished after reading other reviews - but no! Nowhere near as good as previous owners. Bath/shower handle awkward and loose and if you wanted shower all you get was part shower and running water into bath at same time. No guide for facilities in room. First day they had...

By the time I got around to booking there weren't many available rooms for the night of the company picnic. We needed three for our family and luckily we found them here. The front desk lady was very courteous and found us three rooms close together, and even provided pizza menus so we could order delivery after our late arrival....

The workers at the hotel were really courteous and helpful. The hotel was being renovated so there was a combination of the country decor and the more modern clean decor.

Nice, clean, large room, comfortable beds, fridge and microwave all for a great price! Close to everything. The hotel was under a bit of construction while we were there but we were never bothered by it. Unfortunately we never made it down for the free breakfast but it looked lke there was a big selection of items .

While the ongoing renovations detract from any impressive greeting or registration , our room was clean and nice. The single ice machine in the three story facility was broken the first night and our room had no towels. The staff was helpful getting both issues resolved quickly. We chose not to eat there due to the availability of quality food...
