22-Jun-2014 Verified Review, stayed from Wed Jun 18 to Sun Jun 22 2014 at a $125.55 average nightly rate.
"Friendly helpful staff, limited frills"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Booked during Arnold classic for $211/night. Not worth the inflamed rate. Appreciated the in room fridge though the "gym" was disappointing. Had to go to another gym to work out. Was mostly quiet until 6am when kids started running up the hall. Room was generally clean, and breakfast buffet was nice. All in all, I will not book this hotel again for the price. Maybe for $100 less! The staff was nice though.

"Everything was satisfactory at the hotel. Leslie, their group sales coordinator did an excellent job taking care of our needs for billeting and hospitality facilities. Your web site is among my favorite sites and may, in fact, be used again next year for a possible reunion in our nation's capitol." R.R. - Southwest Florida
