TripAdvisor Ratings

July 16, 2018

We have stayed at this hotel for 4-5 years and have always enjoyed the staff and our room. However, this year things have changed. My 83 yr old mother made the reservations on line - I was very proud of her. However, she put our checkout date one day later than it should have been. We didn't realize this until we arrived. We asked the hotel to change this for us....but they said since it was booked through Expedia they couldn't. Later that night I went online to change the date. Expedia said I had to follow hotel policy. I explained that to the hotel and they will absolutely not change the date nor refund us for the one day. We pre-paid. Never again will we do this. Plus I think this is the last time we will stay here. They have remodeled - thinking it would improve things - there is no carpet in the room - you have to wear your shoes all the time because the floor is sticky and gritty. There is no counter space to speak of in the bathroom, the bathtub is stained yellow. I am so sorry this has happened - we enjoyed our previous trips but the staff and remodel on this one is less than desired.

I have stayed a few times at this hotel. KP and the staff always do a great job to make it a very nice stay. They make it warm and comfortable like a bed and breakfast. They have lit votive candles and a coffee bar to invite you in. I think KP and the staff should be commended for being great employees and people. Come and see for yourself because it's wonderful.

Best hotel and staff. Great location.

Former Holiday Inn
July 02, 2018

The property was a former Holiday Inn, and they took half. The other half is a La Quinta. Parking lot is shared, so I parked in the back. Room has the fake hardwood floors, which are OK, but the issue is they can get a little moist/humid esp after stepping out of the shower. WIFI was very inconsistent. Sometimes it worked, sometimes it didnt. TV selection was OK at best. My hot & cold selector was stripped, so you never knew whats hot and whats cold and where the stopping point was. Water was warm and pressure was decent. Good amount of outlets for all my stuff. Bed/pillows were average at best. Ice machine on the 3rd floor was inoperable w/ no sign posted. After day 2, someone half cleaned my room, making my bed, removing my trash but never replacing the trash liner, and then taking the washcloth I used and never replaced it. I had the DO NOT DISTURB sign on the door too. Oh then my keycards stopped working after day 2 as well. Hotel was fairly quiet and right off the highway. For the price, its OK.

Cheap and Clean.
June 26, 2018

Large hotel that is clean and cheap. I got a single room for around $70 a night. It wasn't extravagant or luxurious, but my stay was good and the continental breakfast was better than the average. I would use this hotel again, especially if I am on a budget. Close to places to eat and shop, but about 15 min from downtown.
