The hotel is nice and the staff is friendly. The front desk staff at check in needs some training. Misinformation made the check in difficult and took longer than needed. Great value with the full breakfast offered.

Great location - great price

My husband and I both stayed in this hotel on separate occasions to visit our daughter for the weekend. Not only is it an easy walk to campus and the downtown scene, but the breakfast that is included is amazing! Everyone was super accommodating and nice too. We will definitely come back to stay!

The hotel was nice and near downtown. We didn't get in our car once we arrived until it was time to drive home, which is what we wanted. However, it should be noted that the walk from the hotel to downtown is uphill. But, it isn't a long walk.
