This Hotel was a wonderful 5 night stay for us. The rooms were exceptionally clean. The staff was very helpful and friendly, and the overall look of the hotel was very well kept. The complementary shuttle to the airport made our lives SO much easier, and the restaurant on site was super convenient, had great service, and everything we ordered was delicious. (Best fries ever!)

Hotel's Favorite
The hotel is gorgeous!!!! The lighting in the lobby is just stunning and makes you feel like you are at a high class resort, event though the prices here are more than reasonable. Upon check in, I met two men at the front desk that were kind, courteous and more than helpful. They even let me choose my room! "Would you like first or second floor? Do you have children? Would you like to be near the pool." They placed us EXACTLY across from the pool and arcade entrance which my kids though was AMAZING!!!! Pool was HUGE! and had a shallow and deep end. There was also an arcade with about 5 games which again, the kids thought was great! There was even a laundry room that was super clean and looked new. The entire facility was clean. The only thing we would like to have seen in the room would be a SmartTv. Breakfast is not included in the stay. There is a restaurant on site, but we found it to be a bit pricey. Yes- you could get a $5 breakfast at that restaurant with two eggs, toast and potatoes, but we felt you could go somewhere else for cheaper and better variety for the cost. It was easy to get to other places around. We always enjoy dinner at Hoss's. We also visit Bass Pro Shops. Starbucks was right down the road. I'd definitely stay here again and the staff were AMAZING!

What a terrific hotel! Convenient location. The lobby is beautiful and looks very high-end. The staff is very welcoming and friendly. The rooms are spacious, clean, well-appointed, and extremely quiet. The bed was so comfortable...first time my FitBit registered my sleep as good! The Irish pub was lovely and the food was delicious!

I had such a wonderful experience with this vendor. Had my wedding here and everything turned out magnificent! The staff is so accommodating. All my guests just raved about everything. I had to postpone my wedding a year due to covid and I never had any issues. Highly recommend!

It’s about 20 mins away. It’s clean, awesome pool, updated lobby and restaurant on site. Rooms were clean not as updated as the lobby but bathrooms were updated. management/ employees are super accommodating and pleasant to work with. They go above and beyond. I recommend if there is any issues talk to management before writing reviews it’s not fair to not give others a chance to redeem themselves. We had a small issue nothing big and management resolved it without stress. Overall it was a very clean good experience. Pool is super nice and clean. Also, love the brick in the hotel super different and cool. The pool room is cool. They have a small game room. We enjoyed our stay and the employees really make it!
