This is a lovely location right next to the river, yet with plenty of parking and just off the interstate. Friendly reception and nice room with all the facilities like fridge, microwave etc. Possibly the public areas are due for a freshen up would be my only criticism.

More of a motel than a hotel, in serious need of an upgrade. Decor is down at heel and parts don't feel really clean, including the room, which to be honest smelt a bit. Location is within walking distance of city centre but nothing in the immediate vicinity of any interest. Didn't brave the bar or restaurant having looked at... More

Motel is close to Capital but doesn't offer much else. Needs update and is difficult to find. Room was very worn and generally in poor shape for the money. Shay at front desk was great and was the best part of the stay.

Hotel was beautiful with room decor, comfortable bed, with lots of pillows, flat screen TV, but finding roaches in the bath room is not my idea of a nice stay.

If you need Internet access stay somewhere else. When I asked about it at front desk the Guest Service Rep rattled off a list of "rooms that have good wifi". I asked a 2nd time and was told they were not aware of plans to improve.
