The room was nice and roomy. Bed was comfortable enough. Breakfast was supposed to be hot but everything was cold even the coffee. While we were eating they brought out decaf coffee, I assume was hot but the regular coffee was not changed out.

Great value!! Book early before prices go up closer to the day. We always like staying at this hotel over the last 2 decades. Friendly. Free breakfast with individual biscuits, bagels, yogurt, oatmeal, apples, but you can make your own waffles. Easy to socially distance with outdoor patio. Nice family pool. Adequate gym with dumbbells, machine, treadmill, stationary bike but elliptical stride is not long enough in my opinion.

I booked a room for a work trip at the $80 state employee rate. They called me a few weeks later stating that there was an event happening and they had a 3 night minimum requirement. I said I understand but I couldn't make that work and to cancel my booking. Problem solved and everyone is happy at this point. They call me back 15 minutes later and say they will waive the 3 night requirement. I say great, I'll keep my reservation. Imagine my surprise when they billed me $336 for my one night stay. They changed the rate and did not bother to inform me of this on the call and now refuse to refund the difference, so I have to pay $240 out of my own pocket for a work trip. They are saying it's my fault for not checking the confirmation email, which looked identical to the original one. I didn't bother to look because who would switch the rate without telling me?? This is completely unethical and needless to say I will be taking my business elsewhere in the future.

I really loved the bathroom and how spacious and bright it was. Just know there was not a huge counter top like most others have but space was nice. There was plenty of space for bathroom essentials. Room was clean.

Lobby was nice, service was good with one caveat detailed below. The hot breakfast was better than most hotels at this price point. Good eggs, sausage, biscuits/gravy, oatmeal, cereal, fresh fruit and coffee all were options. My only gripe was trying to access the hot tub in the evening. Unfortunately two fat slobs had taken up shop with their drinks in hand and didn't move from the tub for 2 hours. A reasonable limit on this perk would be appreciated. Other than the rude jerks at the pool, the hotel was a great experience.

The room was clean but overall my stay was SOOO uncomfortable. The internet, air conditioner and TV remote didn't work. The beds were hard and the pilows squished flat. The breakfast was terrible. The staff were not helpful and sounded annoyed.

Front desk lady is horrible. She does not understand customer service. I asked to add my rewards number She raised her hands and said she had other things to do. Not in a manner a customer should expect to experience
