Very nice rooms
By Willl63
The hotel was reasonably priced for the area. Our other chain hotel that we generally stay at was a was a bit higher this time. We have three or four different hotels that we use. The rate is what [More] makes our decision where we stay. We were very pleased with the hotel. Were not in the room or the hotel for very long. We were out late at night and left early in the morning. But for the time in the hotel it was a very pleasant stay. The breakfast was very good, with a nice variety of food to chose from. [Less]

Reservation problem adjusted by helpful local desk clerk
By AkLisa
I made the reservation on line, Nowhere did I perceive that it was non-refundable. When my plans changed so that I arrived a day later, the 800 number customer service desk wouldn't help me. She did [More] however transfer me to the local hotel desk, who was able to change my reservation after I begged and pleaded. So it was good that the local hotel desk clerk could help me, but it was bad 1) that the website didn't make it CLEAR I was renting at a non-refundable rate. And it was no special deal, it was full price, which is a LOT in my opinion. And it was bad 2) that the customer service number wouldn't help me. The hotel itself was fine, with very comfortable beds. The bathroom was EXTREMELY well lit, shockingly so. [Less]
