"The Hotel Was Fine. Enjoyed our Stay there."

We all had a good stay.
(Group coordinator, booked 15 rooms), from US flag
21-Jul-2014 Verified Review, stayed from Thu Jul 17 to Sun Jul 20 2014 at a $59.00 group rate (22% discount).
"Great place for a one night stay."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
I liked the options that were provided for breakfast and how friendly the staff were, especially Shannon. She worked very hard to answer any questions we had during our stay. I highly recommend her and the crew to get a raise and for her personally to get employee of the month or quarter for she floated around with octopus arms dabbling with laundry, breakfast bar, front desk etc. My only compaint is that they ran out of clean towels the morning we checked out forcing us to not shower before hitting the road back to mn or use the towels we were provided with the night before.
(Individual traveler, booked 1 room), from US flag
14-Jul-2014 Verified Review, stayed from Fri Jul 11 to Sat Jul 12 2014 at a $61.00 average nightly rate.
