when i got there around 1pm - They didnt have the Queen double bed what i pay for from orbitz.. They told me they didnt have that room for the day I request for - so they give me a double bed.

Everything about my stay was great except the highway noise. It was friendly, clean, good water pressure, the curtains closed and made it dark, the bed was decent and the covers were comfy.

Great staff, location, and pretty quiet. Easy access to 235.

The hotel was clean. The heat didn't work and the road noise was very loud.

Friendly and helpful staff. I needed som hair spray and hair gel, so the driver took me to Walgreens.

Its always been nice. Its clean and well kept. Thats about all I have to say at this time.

Centrally located and clean rooms. Food was excellent at the bar.

Too close to I325. Very noisy until late at night.

I had a beautiful room with an excellent view. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. I felt at this price point a free breakfast should be included.

Very nice hotel, friendly staff, clean rooms. The free shuttle they offer was a huge plus.

Its close to downtown and Drake. They are super friendly. No free breakfast. Being close to the hospital does create some middle of the night sirens.

Location for the price was good. Toilet wouldn’t stop running without jiggling and futzing with it. Air con didn’t work. Wouldn’t only pump out heat. Had to open the window to keep it cool in the room. Wasn’t worth notifying staff as were only there for a quick sleep overnight.

We came for the basketball tournament and had a blast. We were able to check in early and they upgraded our room b/c the type we reserved were not available. They put us in a king suite at no charge!! If I had a negative, it is that the bed was really hard so I didn’t sleep well. Everything else was really nice. Another positive.... we are within walking distance of the arena and downtown bars!
