Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Scottie and Vera Rowland Family Reunion."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Annie and her staff members did a wonderful job. We had a great time. Hats off to them all!
(Group coordinator, booked 20 rooms), from US flag
09-Sep-2014 Verified Review, stayed from Fri Aug 08 to Mon Aug 11 2014 at a $69.99 group rate (40% discount).
"Great staff, but Hotel needs updating"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The staff was very welcoming but as we walked to our rooms, we could smell moisture in the building. The room was fine, beds were comfy but upon staying, we discovered no fan in the bathroom and moisture build up like mold or mildew on the bathroom ceiling. The pool area was closed on Friday night and the Whirlpool was closed off. Very disappointing! The breakfast was excellent with lots of variety, but the Benigan's is seeing its wear and due for a remodel. Overall average is the best rating I can give.
(Individual traveler, booked 1 room), from US flag
21-Oct-2013 Verified Review, stayed from Thu Oct 17 to Sat Oct 19 2013 at a $129.99 average nightly rate.

Testimonials: Why use Hotel Planner?

"We greatly appreciate your help. We had made arrangements with a hotel and then found out that it was located in a bad part of town. The trip is in three weeks and we felt doomed. I found your site and we had bids from three hotels within 1 hour. On such short notice and a larger group .. We are thrilled !! Thanks !!" T.G. - Missouri City, MO
