Check in was after 3:00 pm. We arrived at 5:00 pm and no one was at desk. After waiting 5-10 minutes, I called hotel, and was told another guest was being helped, and someone would be right there. About 3-4 minutes later, help arrived and we got checked in.

The inn was as advertised very clean room was large and received a nice greeting at the front desk. Beds were very comfortable.

Verified Travelocity guest review

8/10 Very good

The staff were very welcoming and friendly. Rooms were updated and beautiful. Next time we stay I will pick a room on the top floor because there is no sound proofing in this building and the people above us were very heavy on their feet. You could hear every drawer they opened and every step they took. Only other suggestion is to refresh their continental breakfast and ensure their are appropriate utensils to pick up your food without everyone touching it (I.e.: no tongs to pick up bagel or English muffins).

8/10 Very good

It was a relatively inexpensive option for an overnight stay. I didn't have time to explore the surrounds or the facilities. I arrive late in the evening and left early in the morning. In addition, I could take advantage of the included breakfast since I left before 8 am which is the time breakfast is served.
