9.7 Wonderful
Pros:Great location, super friendly staff, we were very pleased!
Cons:We read the reviews online, and yes the rooms are a bit small, but other than that, it’s a great location!
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Very accommodating to my needs. Came to town for a bodybuilding competition and they were able to get the room set the way I needed, empty fridge and microwave, plus they did my dishes!
2.0 Poor
Cons:Thus is a downgrade from lot of 4 star hotels. Never staying in one again.
4.8 Mediocre
Pros:Hotel is in a great location, bed was nice, as was the decor.
Cons:Last two nights there, the lobby smelled like a stadium bathroom, staff was not helpful upon checking in, the front door to the hotel has to be the most awkward door I have ever seen on a hotel. Also, instead of having an actual door on the bathroom, they have a sliding glass door. Just a word of warning, if you have a knock at the door and someone is in the shower be sure to pull the door closed because you can see straight into the shower from the entryway. That is poor planning and inexperience. I would not stay here again nor recommend to anyone.
6.5 Okay
Pros:Comfy beds Clean rooms Pool area is nice Fairly modern
Cons:Unexpected construction noise from the hotel that started before 7am. Very strange bathroom door Inconsistent level of service and friendliness raging from super friendly and nice to border-line rude Expensive parking
7.7 Good
Pros:Everything offered and available to guests. The rooms are small, but beautiful
Cons:Size of room for price paid
10.0 Wonderful
