Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Some Problems."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
I stayed in 215. The floor in bathroom was very cold. The fan in bathroom did not work and appeared it hadn't in a long time. Very dirty vent. The TV didn't get as many channels as I wanted. The front desk ladies were awesome. Also we had to park across the street in the overflow lot. Thanks.

"Like staying in a quaint and cozy hotel. We loved It!"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
We loved the traditional beauty of the hotel. The staff right away was extra friendly and helpful, especially Monica and the bellman with big smiles on their faces. The essentials and incidentals were special which included papering in the morning, bottled waters, afternoon happy hour, soaps, etc. We were able to get to know some of the guests at appetizer time. The pool was a great added bonus. We loved the parking and easy access to our car. Great location and close to great Shopping! Thanks so much, will recommend it to family and friends. No negatives.
