Nice place to stay. The Breakfast was not. Went done to find nothing but. Bagels, cereal, yogurt. The orange juice machine poured nothing but water. For the price i paid i could have stayed some place else. And got a decent Breakfast.

Lacrosse tournament
We came as a family for a lacrosse tournament. It was only five minutes from the soccer field where they played lacrosse. It was very convenient. The kids played in the pool. There wasn’t much for breakfast. They said they don’t serve hot breakfast in the summer.

Quick Stay
Nice hotel and easy check in. Rooms were clean and semi updated. Good on a budget. Well lit, safe, and no issues. The only disappointment was the breakfast. You are better off bringing food or going somewhere.

Perfect tiny apartment
Seamless check-in. The room was very clean and comfortable. Full-sized fridge, toaster, hot plate, and microwave available in the room. Along with some random dishes and such. I didn't use any of it but it's good to have your own ice maker in the freezer. Very convenient. Sofa-bed and office desk in the room as well. Bathroom was spacious and the bed was not saggy. Overall very good and the price was half of other hotels in the area. Will absolutely return.

4/10 Fair

Don’t count on breakfast or any room service
Hotel was overbooked so even though I Booked a King bed, we were given a queen. They did put us in a suite, but it was virtually the same amenities as the room with a King had, so only difference was a door to the bedroom. We stayed 3 nights and breakfast was literally bread and butter with nothing else. I asked about any compensation since there was no breakfast and was told to speak to the manager who was not there. The keurig in our room did not work. We had to go to the front desk to exchange it. There was no room service. I was told that only happens if you stay 5 or 7 nights, the front desk agent wasn’t sure. One of the dining chairs had wax melted to the seat cushion. The sofa was very worn. 2 positives… same young man working at the desk during the day for our entire stay was ver polite and professional and the room itself was equipped with 2 burners, a dishwasher, and a refrigerator, which were all nice and clean. My sister and her family also had a room during the same time and the bathroom mirror had a cigarette left on top of the frame, there was garbage in the room, and it appeared the room hadn’t been cleaned from the last people who stayed in it, which made me wonder if bedding gets changed between guests.

Nice stay...terrible breakfast
We stayed for 5 nights lasr weekend for state wrestling. Room was huge and clean. Beds were comfy. Disappointed in workout room. Husband tried running on treadmill and kept turning off. No weights. Not much in there. But the breakfast was the worst thing about stay. Very stale bread. Only toast, bagel or chex cereal. Juice machine never worked right. I understand there was an efficiency kitchen, but not everyone wants to cook.
