I stay at this hotel quite often. It has ample parking and the staff is always friendly. During the last year, they changed their dining area into a bistro of sorts serving Starbucks coffee. Although the ambiance is okay, the prices have gone up a bit. If you want something more than a few drinks - go someplace else as...

Dear DaveofSpencer, We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy the changes that have been made in our Bistro. Having Starbucks in the Bistro eliminates the option of having free coffee in the lobby, but we have had great feedback from guests who enjoy the variety of drinks available at Starbucks. We are thrilled to hear that you...

I stayed for work and found it very quiet and the bed was comfortable. Everyone was super friendly. It's located near the business park. Close drive to area resturants and bars. The breakfast was delicious. Made to order. They even had Starbucks! !

I was traveling with my husband, parents, and daughter on our way across the Midwest last week. We got off to a late start and didn't arrive to the hotel till around 11pm. At check in, the receptionist took the time to make sure we had what we needed. Even at this late hour, when we asked about a roll-away,...

We chose this hotel for a family function in town. The Bistro was great for a drink in the evening as well as for breakfast in the morning - the choices are much better than a traditional hotel breakfast. The pool is smaller, but my younger daughter enjoyed it because she could touch on both ends. The staff was excellent...

Hotel was excellent and lobby was trendy and completely remodeled/relaxing. The bed was really soft and just like home, and the hotel staff was wonderful/helpful - Bistro inside was delicious! Highly recommend anything off the menu - my favorite was the flatbread!

My boyfriend and I were in town for a firefighter convention and we were so amazed with how great this hotel really is. The room was gorgeous...way better than the pictures online.
