1st of all I want to state that the hotel is completely remodeled. The rooms are extremely small. The bathroom is micro, with no counter to place your personal hygiene items on. The beds are comfortable. Now onto my why I am placing this review. When we checked in they had us checking in the night before when in fact...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

Since the total remodeling, it's a new and beautiful place that's close to many things. Parking is free and there's a free breakfast now. Staff is very friendly and eager to please you. I especially want to say the breakfast dining room attendant, Cherelle, did an excellent job of waiting upon the customers. I noticed she was adding more freshly...

Overall the Hotel and rooms are excellent, the only concern we had was that the Bar closes at 11 pm on a Concert/Sporting Event night and we were looking forward to unwinding with a few drinks and there was nothing except to go to bed. Not impressed with that

It is a great hotel to stay at to go to wild games. We love it however this time they were still working on the hotel and did not offer comp. For the inconvenience. Some things are starting to open up and other parts are still under construction. Trying to get to the lobby is crazy.

This hotel has obviously just finished a renovation. Actually I shouldn't say finished, since they are still working on the 7th floor. I was trying to work from my room this afternoon and there was loud banging and drilling going on a couple of rooms down. I can't hold that against them though because not many people are stuck in...

Pros Clean and well decorated room. The bed was comfortable, slept through the nights from exhausting days. Everyone of the staffs we encounter were very friendly and helpful.

Nice rooms. Josh who runs the breakfast buffet goes out of his way to be helpful. But buffet itself was so so. Pancake machine was cool. Our room was near byway and noise level was high. Had trouble with air conditioner.
