I stay at this hotel 1-2 nights per week and I have always been very pleased with every aspect of my stay with a few exceptions. I particularly enjoy the craft and burgers restaurant when Morgan, Taylor or Jolene are working, but not so much with Lindsey.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 9 April 2017

Just normal hotel rooms, but a friendly, helpful staff, clean rooms, and central location make this a nice place to stay. The exercise area was a pleasure as well - with huge windows looking out on the pool area and well-equipped (three treadmills, two elipticals, full range of free weights).

Stayed on May 20, 2017 and was disappointed in the housekeeping of our room. The desk chair looked to have been stored in a dusty room and was only dusted by the seat of a person on it. The dressing mirror had the hand prints of a three year old all over the bottom 12 inches! The bathroom mirror had...

I highly recommend this hotel to everyone! The staff was excellent! I especially want to mention a lady named Darlene who served our breakfast.
