The staff was very nice. Location was perfect for us.
Tired. Has been remodeled, but .... toilet very old, very low to the floor.
Liked location, central and close to mall, felt relatively safe. Enjoyed alternate entrance nearer to room. Size of room was great, fridge and microwave a plus. Nice woodsy view outside of windows. Staff was very nice. Pool seemed nice but didn't go. Would stay again, very nice value for the price.
I did not love the slow elevators, and they need a not protein at breakfast. Love hard boiled eggs but with three nights it got a bit old. A nice scrambled egg option would make all the difference in this hotel for me. They also needed to vacuum the halls a bit more for overall cleanliness impression. But these wouldn't affect my decision to stay again.
No fan in bathroom working
Staff was very nice and the breakfast was good. It was a little hard to find as there was only a small sign. The plantings were nice and it was well maintained.
Other guests - Our room was freezing when we arrived and it was nice weather so we opened the window but had to close is as there were people outside smoking and even though we were on the 4th floor, the smoke came in the window. The people stayed in the parking lot until after midnight and were loud. Also, just as a heads up, we were in a king suite and there was a couch but it was not a sleeper - could only be used as a twin.
