My husband was busy and booked this place without reading their reviews 1st. Big mistake! The rooms are old, smelly, dark and dirty for $160. This place needs a lot of serious updating for the amount they are charging. We travel regularly every year in and outside the country.

This is not a “hotel”..... more a motor inn. Dirty windows filled with cobwebs, broken/chipped outlets, surface clean but feels dirty. Just kind of a run down facility and definately not worth what they charge. In addition, they aren’t forthcoming about the fact there is no

The hotel and room amenities are dated, but clean and comfortable. The hotel is conveniently located on the river and close enough to restaurants and walking trails. Can't complain, clean bed and a hot shower.

Yes! We offer a complimentary shuttle to and from the airport. Please call us once you have arrived and received your luggage. The front desk will then dispatch a Guest services team member and direct to the pick up location. It is usually a 15-20 min wait depending on weather conditions and traffic, unless of course someone is already there or on there way. Thank you so much and we hope to see you soon!

Is there a free breakfast?
No, but you are downtown, and there are some great places very nearby. It all depends on what experience you want for breakfast, i.e., upscale, cheap, continental, historic, convenience, etc. Mixedupco mentioned the Satellite, and we very much liked them and have visited several times. Ripples that nbshir mentioned is onsite, and while we have never tried it, there are always a lot of people enjoying breakfast there--and it's outdoor seating area is very, very nice in good weather. Enjoy your visit...!

"First floor is best if you don't like climbing stairs to get to the second floor."
"Request building 1 or 2 and bottom floor (no elevator.)"
"If you want to use the pool be sure to ask for a room that's close. It's a really long walk if you're not in that wing."
"Don't stay in last building, unless you have a dog. We do, so this was THE BEST feature for us in this room."
"Get a view of the river."
