This hotel receives a 3.5 rating which I will explain in this review. The hotel itself was very clean and nicely layed out. It was bright and welcoming along with some fun Hallowe'en decorations. The breakfast area was a good size with great options, open from 6:30 AM - 10 AM which was nice. Coffee was always available. There are... More

Hotel is clean, with comfortable beds, fridge and coffee maker. They also had bathtubs (I love baths, so important to me). Rooms were $200, which seemed a bit pricey, but we were in town for sold out concert. There aren't a lot of other choices. They have pool, jacuzzi. Breakfast is pretty good, offering self serve hit and cold choices.... More
