"Very nice hotel good location."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
My sister and I stayed here for one night. We were disappointed because when I booked the room, I was told there would be a hot tub and there is not. And though there is free breakfast, which we also wanted, it was the pandemic version, so we went out to eat. The staff were very pleasant and accomodating, the river view was awesome and the amenities in the room were comfortable, except that the desk lamp did not work and would not charge our phones.

"Very clean room."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
The bed was amazing and the over night rate beat the competition in that area. They even offered a free breakfast. The parking lot was huge. We definitely would stat there again.

Dirty room, no shower vent, Nats everywhere, A/C broken, toilet wouldn't flush and ran down. Would have expected more for the price we pd.
