The hotel was in the middle of a remodel which was not stated - the breakfast was modest - only pancakes, biscuits & white sausage gravy, hard boiled eggs, yogurt & cold cereal with juice & coffee - the same each morning. The pool, small gym and hot tub were clean and open 24 hrs, which was great but not enough towels. The staff was very nice - slow but nice. Great location near a variety of restaurants & shopping.

Thank you for your feedback, it's essential to providing excellent service. We are currently undergoing reservations on the 3rd and 4th floors of our property, and will be starting the additional 2 floors and public areas very soon! This is an exciting time for us, so we can provide our guests with new accommodations and better service! We are sorry if the renovations affected your stay, we are working very hard to ensure these types of things do not occur. We hope you join us again when our property is finished with the renovations!
