Fabulous 8.8 From 249 reviews

Very Good 8.0
VA appointment trip
There was a a recent review on the bed in the room they were very hard that part was definitely true. Other than that the room was clean and we actually had a downtown view, the passing cars through the night were a little noisy but not annoying. The stay was really nice and quiet. Breakfast was a little dismal, but overall a pretty good stay!

Very Good 8.0
Good but could use some attention
Staff was extremely nice. The stay was good and quiet for the most part, but my bed was absolutely horrible. I’ve stayed in cheaper hotels with more comfortable beds. I was in disbelief when I plopped down on the bed only to feel myself literally bouncing on what felt like a horribly old spring mattress. I have back problems so I didn’t sleep well at all. Not real happy about that. I did have an issue with kids from a basketball team coming and knocking on my door then hitting it really hard when no one answered, but the front desk was extremely apologetic and knew how to handle it. I feel like I paid too much for the quality of the bed. The room was nice, but you could tell it needs a little face lift and the telephone in the room wouldn’t even stay connected to the cord for me to call the front desk. I would still stay there again just because of the location.

Poor 2.0
Not good
They denied having our reservation and said they were folly booked. Not good and made dealing with the passing of a loved one even harder.

Good price for the area
My stay was overall great. The room was clean and a good size for 4 people. They had just enough towels for us which wasn't a problem because we were able to ask for more. They didn't provide extra sheets or blankets for the sofa bed but I went down to the lobby at 2a.m. and they provided me extras. Didn't try out the breakfast. The pool needed cleaning which they did the next day but no one used it. An elevator went down for a day which was frustrating but they got it fixed in 24 hours. The front desk always greeted us with a smile when we walked in an out. They were very friendly. Parking was $10/a day and they give you a pass to put in your car. They ran out of parking spots Saturday night. But there's eparking meters on the road. Restaurants and bars were only a 5 minute walk away. I would suggest just walking instead of driving, parking could be difficult. Hidden hotel feels so expect about an extra $30 and a $25 card approval hold fee. Accepts debit/ATM cards as payment.

I was charged $10 a day to park but the parking lot was full. You shouldn’t charge people for more parking spaces that you have available.

Homey stay. Noon checkout. Friendly staff. Would definitely stay again.

Good 6.0
The front desk attendant tried to “get one over on me” by saying “swipe your card for parking” and I was charged $70 when parking was only $10 a day. This practice is shady and non-transparent. I don’t mind paying a hotel deposit but this clerk intentionally avoided telling me about this deposit and then when I asked if anything was being held on my card she said “only the parking just swipe it”. Very disappointed in this practice

Needs more stars!
The service here was top notch, both day and night shifts were super friendly and helpful. And since the lobby/lounge area was closed due to covid restrictions, the desk clerk found a way to check us in early so we didn't have to wait in our vehicle for check-in time. Housekeeping was also very covid-conscious and brought our coffee packets by personally, so there were as few hands as possible on things. Also, the walls were very well insulated. The pull out sofa bed was really uncomfortable because it's a sofa bed, but the sofa itself was a very satisfactory compromise — our teenage son said it was the most comfortable he's ever been in a hotel room, and that's saying a lot as we used to travel frequently. The kitchen area was superb — working dishwasher, stove, large refrigerator/freezer, garbage disposal, even dishes/silverware/glasses and kitchen utensils, with pots and pans. So if you're on a budget for food, you can totally bring your own no problem! We would stay here again in a heartbeat and highly recommend it. Very happy. Not enough stars available to rate these guys higher than five.
