It was a beautiful hotel and the beds were very comfortable. They were pet friendly and even offered our dog a treat. We felt welcomed.

Upon arrival the room was not vaccumed or looked cleaned. Was approached by a homeless person when we walked in the door to our room. Room and pillows smelled like smoke. Some staff was not friendly. Will not stay there again😫

The room was clean was the only redeeming quality of the stay. The pillows were over sized and hard as bricks. The batteries in the remote were missing, the toilet was loud and ran forever, and everything was in plugged. The hotel needs some updating.

Loved staying at this hotel. The check in process was quick and friendly. Even with the snowy mush they kept things fairly clean. I didn't but not sure if I could have found a dirty spot on the room itself...it seemed spotless! The beds & pillows were comfy, they had a nice fridge & microwave, the tv was on the large size, and the decor made the whole place homey! The bathroom was clean and had a iron board with iron in it, it had also had plenty of water pressure from the shower head. They had two small trash cans, one in the bed area and one under the sink, it would have been handy to have a third for the bathroom. The folks that worked there were always so friendly and working hard...the slide area was fun with plenty of towels and seats. There was a air hockey table and a table tennis one too. There is a Perkins attached so you don't have to go outside to get to it but it would have been nice to have a continental breakfast. My only complaint would be the parking ( it was snowy and lines weren't visible ) but maybe summer is better! Great hotel close to plenty of places!

Nice hotel. No free breakfast because there is a Perkins attached. Also charged a resort fee; it is a hotel, not a resort. We stayed at Day's Inn for two days before The Grand Inn. Nice hotel and no resort fee.; check it out.
