This place was clean. It was close to the interstate but the traffic noise was not bad through the night. The only fault was that I could not set the time on the clock in the room. It was a gizmo you could plug in to probably with your own device but I just wanted the time at a glance...

Hi Ace, thank you for your review of our property. You should not hear any road noise from the highway as the new windows installed are very sound proof. Our clock radios are a Radisson Brand standard requirement. I do understand the difficulty, I myself am technically challenged, if in a hotel that has a challenging clock I use my...

Waitress was very nice. The not so good news: this is an older facility being remodeled, and it shows in the halls, dinged doors, old and...

Stayed for 3 nights. Hotel was easy to find off the highway and convenient for all daily activities. Room was clean, gym good and Alisha (hope spelling is right) was friendly and helpful in getting my laptop working with Wi Fi. Very comfortable and relaxing. Great value for the price and would stay again.
