Positive Reviews

Above And Beyond

The hotel staff is absolutely awesome. If you want to experience what a professional staff is all about, stay at this hotel. The manager goes above and beyond to make sure that your stay is comfortable. The staff tries to iron out any inconveniences and they are not shy about apologizing.

Get Out A Little

The breakfast is more than adequate. It exceeds expectations as it will satisfy even the most picky eater. Eggs, waffles, fruit, yogurt, and other niceties are more than adequate to help start your day. While you're at it, get out a little and try Uncommon Grounds a few miles up the road. They've got the best bagels in town, probably in the state!

Newly Updated

The hotel has undergone a renovation. It has a fresh, clean ambiance and the furnishings are very comfortable. It's a delight to stay in this hotel.

Negative Reviews

It's Just Not The Same

The renovation is lovely but it seems that they forgot a few objects. There are no drawers to place your clothing and accessories in. The covers are a bit heavy and uncomfortable. When the facility was under the previous management, you received things like free bottled water and the price was lower. Nevertheless, for the most part, the renovations are a positive change.

Did They Forget The Insulation?

Even though the newly refurbished room looks beautiful, it seems they forgot about soundproofing. You can hear above, below, and next door. Surround sound is great, but not in this way!

Paper Plates Again?

What's happening with hotels these days? The facility uses plastic cutlery and paper plates and it looks tacky.
