Our room was nice but had a odor in the room. We could not tell if it was smoke or new carpet smell. We just crack the window to get in fresh air. The staff were great. The breakfast had plenty to choose from.

Stayed with friends for a Mother's Day get together, hot tub jets didn't work and fire pit was broken. Expected these features when I made reservations. Disappointed. Hope things get fixed for others.

Met up with the family last night. Was great. There was something for everyone to do, kids were in the pool, the guys were playing pool. The rooms are awesome and the staff was very nice. We will definitely be back.

We spent a couple of weeknights here for a family getaway over Christmas break. It seems to be an extended-stay type of place, as there were several contractors staying there and we didn't see any other families. We had the pool and hot tub all to ourselves - it was small, but very clean, fun and just right for our...

We stopped for a night- grandchildren visit- we were pleasantly surprised- very nice accommodations...Used to be a Grand Stay. Extremely quiet. Would stay here again. They accept pets- and put us on the first floor - easy access to outside and a wide open area to walk the dog- definite bonus! Grandkids were the only ones in the pool. Max...

Hotel is showing age. We have stayed here for quite a few years. They are doing updates on stairs on one end. Rooms need thorough cleaning in the tough to reach areas seems overlooked. Employees are very friendly and care about the guests. Room size is a plus .Will be trying elsewhere on next visit.

The staff were amazing and super friendly! The lobby was beautiful. Room was cozy...the one bedroom suite was great to be able to have a fridge and make breakfast before the marathon. The staff gave us a very late check out without any problems so we could shower after the run.

GREAT sized room / GREAT breakfast / GREAT daytime staff / GREAT price! BAD: the condition of the lighting... which included missing light bulbs and torn shades / broken kitchen dishwasher / bad phone with NO helpful night staff / NO hotel directory in room / NO "do not disturb" sign / and noisy running in hallways on 3rd floor...

“We were on the top floor, but so were the partying teens. Not so good for sleeping. Maybe we should have gone for floor number 1.”
