Seriously. I think an earlier review nailed it with 'makeup on a pig'. The pros? The food in the little restaurant was VERY good. Burger for him and quiche for me and both were fine. We got them to go. Now, we were on a 'dog' floor with our pups which was fine, $15 per pup. And that's a good...

We checked in at the crew area and were greeted with the nicest smile and warm welcome. We won crew of the day which was such a nice treat after a very long day. I really enjoyed my stay with you and look forward to my next visit. Thanks again Kaitlyn for making our overnight stay such a pleasant experience!

I booked this hotel for a 1 night stay while passing through on a road trip. The only thing friendly about this hotel was the agent who checked me in. I arrived at about 7 pm and check in was fine. I had booked a king accessible room with the breakfast package for two. It became very apparent that after...

Came back to the RL after not visiting for a couple of years. Big difference! The whole property appears to have been renovated. The common areas are modern and elegant. Kaitlyn did a great job checking us in and was very informative and friendly. She is a keeper! The room was comfortable and had several upscale elements, like nice toiletries,...

I was very worried after reading reviews but it wasn't bad. Front Desk can definitely work on customer service. The location is in downtown but not really walking distance to the major sight seeing. Dog friendly our dog loved the wooden floors. It was a good hotel for two nights

The front desk was a table in a hallway. The employees looked like transients off the street. There was mold in our bathroom. The paint was pealing off the ceiling. The sink wouldn't drain very fast. There were no luggage carts. Had to make four trips to my car. Being partially handicap was very difficult. The bathroom near the lobby...

Unfriendly and unprofessional Staff. Little if any concern for customers. not even a registration desk just a table and a couple of laptop computers manned by young folks not familiar with the hospitality Industry. Be careful walking anywhere in the area because of the panhandling bums on the street. The beds are on the soft side but the comforters are...

Love the comfort of the beds. I normally don't sleep well in hotels, but I always sleep well here. The noise isn't bad considering the location of the hotel. Food prices in the restaurant are a little pricey.

Simply, the addition of a security guard in the parking lot seems to have run off the pan-handlers that were so numerous, it was almost laughable. Also, the last time, they were overwhelmed with check-in because of some visiting volleyball team. Instead of setting an agent aside to deal with them, everyone had to wait. This time, no team, easy...
