"Nice spacious room. Good shower. It was clean except for some bits of paper on the carpet, and the soap shelf needed cleaning. Good big-screen TV. The hotel clerks were friendly and helpful. The boxed breakfast had a lot of dairy. Nice place to stay; I recommend it.2021-06-22"
"The beds in my hotel room were comfortable, but the pillows were small. Good TV channel selection. Excellent complimentary breakfast to feed hungry teen boys; there were lots of hot and cold selections.2016-04-29"
"This hotel was pretty bad. The room was small, but the bathroom was smaller; I practically had to crawl into the bathtub in order to close the door. The sink was outside the bathroom, and there was no counter or place to put toiletries. The microwave and refrigerator were on the floor of the portable closet, and the microwave cord wasn't even long enough to reach the outlet. I had to move them to the desk and charge my devices on the floor by the bathroom sink. The bedside lamp didn't work. The hot water was just lukewarm. The cookies in the lobby were hard. Stay somewhere else.2016-04-19"

"I've stayed at this hotel a number of times, but this time the Covid restrictions came as a surprise. Rooms were only serviced every 3 days, and the breakfast menu was limited. A luggage cart was in the hallway for several days, along with used towels in front of room doors. The front desk clerk got agitated when I inquired about the changes.2021-05-21"

"The room was nice, clean, and quiet, and the bed was comfortable. The heater fan was really loud and screeched all night long. The were slushy, slippery snow on the front sidewalk and interior entryway; little shoveling had been done on sidewalks or the parking lot. The hotel clerk was ordering pizza when I entered and didn't look up, but someone else finally came to check me in. 2019-02-12"

"We arrived at the hotel at 3 PM, but had to wait to get into our room until 4:30 PM. The carpet was damp and smelled like a wet dog. The kitchen faucet leaked, the refrigerator needed defrosting, and there was no microwave. Had to go to the front desk for fresh towels and sheets, and also for dishes and a toaster. The grout in the bathroom was filthy. The maintenance man was helpful, friendly, and competent. No public restroom in the lobby. Stay somewhere else.2015-07-22"

"The hallways were always dirty, and water from showers upstairs leaked into the bathtub in my room. I notified the front desk, but nothing was done about it. The ice maker didn't work, but the staff brought me some ice cube trays. Stay at another hotel.2019-10-28"

"The hotel was a bit hard to find since it was on a side street by a few busy highway intersections. The room was quiet and clean, and the bed was comfortable. The AC was quiet and worked well. I was pleasantly surprised by the Paul Mitchell toiletries. Friendly, efficient staff and easy check-in and checkout. Wonderful 4-person whirlpool and nice, clean pool. I liked being able to park right outside the door. Breakfast was great. My experience was quite positive.2017-09-13"

"Close to the mall and IKEA. The hotel was in need of renovation and a good cleaning. It smelled musty and like stale smoke. The AC in my room didn't work well, and the coffee maker was missing a part. There were multiple spiders in the room. The bathroom door wouldn't close, and there was mold on the wall. There was a $25 pet fee. Limited breakfast. Don't park near the trees unless you want bird poop all over your vehicle. Keep your expectations low and you'll be fine.2022-09-12"
"My non-smoking room smelled like smoke, and the counter wasn't clean. The hotel had 2 great things going for it: the friendly and helpful reception staff, and a better grab and go breakfast than most, with variety and healthy options. The common areas could've been cleaner, and the hallways needed vacuuming. The floor in the breakfast area was sticky.2021-10-06"
"The beds were clean and comfortable, but the bathroom was a bit outdated and the floor wasn't clean. There were some cars full of junk in the back parking lot. Don't stay at this hotel.2019-11-18"

"At least this hotel accepts pets. I found some hairs in the bathtub. I brought it to the attention of the front desk clerk, and got absolutely no response. No staff at the desk on departure. Not too impressed.2015-04-01"
"The bathroom sink was full of dirty water when we arrived. There was a soiled towel on the rack, and a used bar of soap in the shower. It made us questions the overall cleanliness of the hotel room.2018-09-05"
"Good hotel with nice rooms. Our room was on the side of the building near the interstate, and it was hard to sleep due to the traffic noise. Breakfast was good, but the eating area was crowded. It was a holiday weekend, so that wasn't a surprise. Nice restaurant across the parking lot.2018-09-04"

"Outstanding hotel for the price. The room was clean and spacious and had separate office, sitting, and bedroom areas, though they were all open to each other. The bed was on the soft side. Good breakfast with hot and cold options. This hotel will be our first choice in the future.2017-09-07"

"The hotel smelled like stale cigarette smoke. The rooms near the highway were noisy, and the front desk was understaffed. The airport shuttle only departed once an hour. Don't stay here.2016-07-29"
"The hotel was under construction. Didn't get a 1st floor room as requested. The whirlpool was out of order, and the front desk staff had no explanation. They finally called me at 9:15 PM to tell me it was working again. I was disappointed since the whirlpool was a major factor in choosing this hotel. Breakfast was a joke, and there was nowhere to sit. The only hot selection was waffles. Don't stay here.2016-05-18"

Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
