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.

Testimonials icon
"I am SO IMPRESSED with your service! I'm just getting started planning our conference for next year. What a gift to find a site through which I can screen multiple bids, without contacting multiple hotels individually. Plus I would never have thought to contact many that we are getting bids from! And all the booking can be done through your site? And you'll help with every possible need? What a God-send!" J.M. - Dallas, TX
