    Very Good 8.4 From 453 reviews

    Good 6.0
    The hotel was very inviting from the outside and the lobby. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I was given a handicap accessible room, not needed, and it was not appealing. The room was dated, the furniture scuffed and dated, but the bed was comfortable and the room was clean. Overall, I felt I was staying in a hospital room rather than a hotel.

    Exceptional 10.0
    Great hotel, friendly staff, great breakfast . AC Units in the room could use a little help.... loud and old . But definitely staying again and recommended to family and friends.

    Poor 2.0
    Beautiful Outside view - Horrible inside
    We were booked in a room next to a room that had a barking dog, that barked all night. Around 9:30am I was getting dressed, and the cleaning lady, came in and suprised me, she didn't knock, just walked right in. She expressed that she thought we had checked out, I said check out isn't until 12pm. After being gone all day, we returned and saw that our door was left open, the door was leaning on the security latch. The toliet didn't flush on the first try, and the sink would get stopped up. We have stayed at many of your hotels in the past, but this was a very bad experience, in addition dealing with our Mom being in the hospital. We chose this hotel location, due to the convience to the Hospital.
