8.0 Great
Pros:This hotel ticket all the boxes. The breakfast was excellent, beds comfortable, rooms quiet and the staff friendly but unobtrusive. Will definitely visit again.
10.0 Excellent
Pros:The room was small but functional. The concierge service and front desk were excellent, prompt and courteous and very, very helpful. Maid service was timely and appropriate. Breakfast buffet was excellent and filled with numerous choices and always very fresh. Dinner menu was limited but all choices were appetizing and enjoyed.
Cons:The wifi service was hard to sign on, if you had good virus protection and was OPEN and therefore not secure. However, the hotel staff helped me a great deal in learning the necessary technique to sign on, and helped me several times with it thereafter. I would have preferred a password protected and secure wifi service which surprisingly was available at several local restaurants.
7.7 Good
Pros:very clean, staff helpful, perfect location for us to visit family living two blocks away
Cons:small room- bed uncomfortable-carpet frayed- room noisy due to the family next door- after they checked out things much better
