First impressions - the only nice thing about this is the lobby - the front desk attendee was very nice . We booked a room online that specifically said roll in shower. We called to make sure we had a roll in shower and asked for an upper level room with roll in shower they said they had an upper... More

I stayed here one night and the room was really nice. Comfortable bed and quiet for a good night sleep. Restaurant and bar in the lobby looked nice, but I did not use. No complementary breakfast was a small drawback. My major concern was the parking lot seemed really dark and with all the large pickups taking two spaces, it... More

I will say the the new image of IHG hotels and the new locations are very nice, this particular location is not the newer version and has not been modernized. Although the staff was very nice and the room large, the shower was very tough to work in my room, and the room itself could stand to be updated. Including... More

While the staff was cordial, some rooms needed updating and general maintenance. The first room I was in smelled dank and dingy. When I washed my hands, the water ran out of the pipe below, onto the floor. The staff promptly promptly relocated me in a recently remodeled room. In the morning I found that the new coffee maker did... More

We were only there one night, but everything worked. Well, one exception is that the shower head is supposed to have different settings, and I couldn't change the setting from the normal spray, but that's no big deal. We paid the normal price I think, and got a big room, Room 121, which had a kitchenette in the front part... More
