My family just stayed here for a week. We had an excellent time! The beds were sooo comfortable that we overslept all week long, not even hearing our alarm clocks. Our room was recently remodeled and
was very, very clean. The room was very big, with two beds and a sofa and a small area with fridge, microwave and cabinet to store goods. The lighting and tv were all brand new and high tech. Large bathroom with sink in it, new acs that were not noisy.
The hotel is under going renovations in the lobby but this in no way interferes with your stay. They are mostly done with everything and are just finishing the floor which today was mostly done, and they are building a fireplace on the side and then they will paint and add all of the new furniture. Others complained about noise but we heard nothing. We had the 2nd floor very near to where the work in the lobby was taking place and we didn't hear a sound. The food area is nearby but the work does not affect it. They have bagged delicious Udis Muffins and bagels, yogurt, cereal, oatmeal and a pancake machine where all you do is put your plate near it and hit go! The toaster has 4 slots and only two slots were working but that is not a problem, you can still use it! The coffee and tea are available all day long.
The manager Brian, was top notch and extremely nice! I have never seen a manager so hands on! He greeted us just as we walked in the door. He was very helpful in all that we asked. Stephan, the other desk clerk was also very nice and helpful! I cannot say enough good things about the two of them.
Don't let the construction stop you from going, it will be done in 2 weeks and really didn't make a difference at all.
The Blue Squid right across the street is a definite must for breakfast or lunch. Don't miss out on going there, the food is excellent. On Wednesdays the movie theater, also across the street, is $6 all day long and has the comfy lounge seats. I would avoid Mystic Diner, the food there was horrible, old and disgusting.
The pool and hot tub are a great addition. Enjoy your stay! We will definitely be back very soon! [Less]
