    Dissapointed guest


    March 27, 2020

    Having stayed here a few times previously, I was very disappointed in my room. The room had several things not working properly.One of the burners on the stove did not work, the toilet paper holder was not secured properly and the lever for the shower would not pull all the way up, therefore not achieving full shower pressure. Overall this is a nice hotel, just felt like I wasted my money this time. Actually left a day early...

    A 9 out of 10


    March 22, 2020

    You would have gotten a 10 out of 10 except for the old guy on nights when I checked in he was VERY rude and not friendly at all. And the young guy with long blond hair is just plain LAZY I asked about a fax machine and he pointed to the computer room i needed help with faxing some paperwork and he would not get off the his cell phone and would not assist me in any way. Other than that it was a very good stay. One thing that would make it better get more TV channels with a larger variety of channels.

    No hot water


    March 02, 2020

    Terrible, terrible, terrible!!!! Extremely upsetting and the hotel staff was rude and no manager on duty to speak with and staff seemed to place blame on others. Plus they were well aware of the situation when we checked in and failed to tell us there was a problem with the boilers!!
