The Good
Guests really liked this hotel and thought it provided excellent value and a great experience.

Guests enjoyed the rooms. They were described as very clean, quiet, spacious, beautifully decorated with very comfortable beds.

The location was convenient. It was right on a major thoroughfare and close to Hwy 2, offering easy access to the rest of town and it was close to many amenities-- shopping, gas stations, restaurants. One guest liked that it was the stopping point for the Red Arrow Bus.

Guests liked the facilities. They were often pleased with the indoor pool, hot tub and sauna area as well as the full service gym with early weekday hours. Several guests were happy to have a free to use games room and pool table.

The free breakfast was well liked. It was tasty, had lots of selection and was offered very early each day and went to 10 am (giving guests time to sleep in a little). One recent comment was, "Also the morning complimentary breakfast was superb, along with neat, pleasant, and professional staff."

The staff did a great job. Guests were pleased with the front desk's helpfulness, the cheerfulness and honesty of the cleaning staff and often mentioned the superb breakfast attendant (Wilson) for his help in starting the day off happily and making great waffles. One guest said recently, "What makes this hotel is the staff. They cannot do enough for you."

Guests enjoyed dining on site. They mentioned having good food in the lounge and restaurant in a clean environment with attentive staff and good pricing.

The Bad
Guests felt very positively overall, but there were a few complaints or nitpicks found online.

Recent room complaints included: an uncomfortable sofabed, room was small, interior rooms' windows faced other rooms, a noisy AC unit, poor water pressure in a guest's shower, windows did not open, a stained couch in the suite, pillows too large and hard, and bathroom and room lighting dim.

Although many guests were impressed with the full service gym on site, a couple of guests wished they extended hours on weekends to earlier in the morning or later in the evening. (Planet Fitness is open weekdays from 6 am to 10 pm and weekends from 8:30 am to 5:30 pm.)

Sometimes guests mentioned that the pool, although lovely, was quite shallow for adult swimming, at just over 3 feet deep.
