  • 4.0.Fair

    Very disappointed

    It was a huge disappointment! Pool and hot tub not working. Paid to much for parking i believe 30 dollars a night is way to much when the sign says 15 a night. Our whole point of going was to relax in the hot tub.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Pool closed. No prior notice. Breakfast was horrible. Very limited. Had to go to a neighboring hotel to swim. Definitely needs upgrading.

    Great price, good room, pool was closed but they gave us passes to a neighboring hotel. Not much staff help but with it for the price.

  • 6.0.Good

    The pool has been closed for over a month due to needed repairs. This was not conveyed to us prior to our stay and there were other families with kids that were very disappointed because they specifically chose to stay there for the pool. The staff at the front desk was not particularly friendly or understanding about our complaint. Also should note our room was about 25’ from train tracks that are very much still in use.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    I loved the suite we stayed in. It reminded me of a small Airbandb apartment. It had a large fridge for groceries, coffee pot, dishes, pots and utensils. Also a small dishwasher. Full size bottles of Paul Mitchell shampoo, conditioner and body wash. Great to stay with family. Had a lot of awesome amenities plus we could sign in to our Netflix. The downside is the $15 fee for parking and also the WiFi didn’t work well on our laptop but I didn’t mess with it long

    The view over the river and the Capitol building was great. Before booking, I confirmed that the pool and hot tub were open. Then when we arrived we were told they were closed because they were broken. That was one of the main reasons we stayed there with our son and a group of his friends. We were not happy at all with this.
