Positive Reviews

Great staff

Guests are quick to praise the staff at this hotel, saying they take care of problems with a positive attitude and really make everyone feel at home during their stay. Many say the front desk staff and managers are especially good value.

Well worth the price

The hotel's location and economic price even during busy football or graduation weekends make it good value for money, guests say. In fact, many report that the rooms are comparable in comfort to more upscale hotels in the area.

Renovations make all the difference

There's a lot of appreciation from guests at the remodel the hotel has gone through. Many comment that the hotel feels fresh and modern, which really add to the overall feeling of their stay.

Negative Reviews

Some highway noise

Light sleepers may want to keep earplugs or a white noise machine handy, as some guests who have rooms facing the street find that there can be noise from the nearby highway. Those who stay in rooms at the back of the hotel report very little noise, however, and recommend requesting one if possible.

More attention to cleaning details

Some guests feel that while the rooms are generally clean and comfortable, housekeeping could pay more attention to the smaller details when cleaning between bookings. A few have mention that dust can be a problem.

No business center

Those looking to conduct business while at the hotel find themselves disappointed in the lack of business amenities provided, noting that it's a hassle to have to go offsite just to take care of quick printing or copying needs.
