    Needs soundproofing, deep clean and repairs/updating

    For the price paid not so good. The pictures don't line up with the reality. It's like the ads for fast food burgers vs what you actually get. Dark Dingy hallways, pool was closed all weekend, not due to disrepair, but due to private parties etc... If not available for guests it shouldn't be listed as an amenity. Very loud door slams all night long, we had a fan on high on top of the ac running, and it still didn't drown out the noise. Feels like a old motel that had a quick facelift. I was expecting a cleaner, more up to date property. Won't be staying here again.

    Second stay

    This was my second time staying here because I loved it so much the first time and it’s super affordable. I also love the decor

    We stayed in a King suite which I mistakenly thought had a kitchen. All we had was a tiny refrigerator which did not have any room to hold all of our leftovers from dinner. That was disappointing. The room was comfortable and the location is convenient.

    Weekend get away!

    Hotel is clean, comfortable and appears to be well taken care of! Hubby & I just wanted a peaceful weekend away to celebrate our 44th anniversary. We truly found a friendly staff, and excellent accommodations which we could also bring our dog! The room even had a doggie bed and bowls for Cindy🐶 upon our arrival! Due to slow travels getting there (another snow storm) we didn’t arrive until around 7 pm so we decided to order dinner from the hotel restaurant and sent to our room. Food was very good and appropriately priced! Most of the weekend we spent lounging and taking short walks with the dog! They have an area off the back if the parking lot to walk the dog and stay out of the way of moving traffic! They also leave a list of area dog friendly parks! Will return again!

    This was by far one of the worst hotel experiences I have ever had. upon check in I had asked if they provide bottled water in the room- they said yes but they did not. We were asked to drive around to our door to enter close to the room. We had trouble finding the door because there was no signage that said entry and it was hidden behind cars. The sidewalk was not clear of snow so me and my boyfriend had to carry our luggage across snow which was frozen. Finally we get to the door and walk in to find no elevator to go upstairs to our room. This hallway area was disgusting- poorly maintained, dimly lit, dirty and smelly of Marijuana and cigarettes. We get into our room to find dirty brown water in the sinks, a toilet that was broken and did not flush ( talk about romantic for Valentine’s Day) and not enough towels for our stay. The phone to call the front desk was broken. The decor felt like blues clues meets motel, slightly childish and paper thin walls. There was no ceiling lights in the main room making it very dark. On our last night we had left for Valentine’s Day dinner, my boyfriend had expressed how he wanted to take his valuables because he didn’t trust the atmosphere there. When we arrived back at the hotel we came up to our room to find out hotel door OPEN and UNLOCKED. This is completely unacceptable- whether it was staff who had entered or if the door just didn’t not close- UNSAFE & DANGEROUS. 0/10 would not recommend
