"Great customer service!"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Very helpful in our specific needs of pet friendly with roll in shower! Mark was excellent in his ability to accommodate our needs and offer any help we needed. I appreciated the security at this location due to the pandemic the homeless population here has increased dramatically. While most of these folks are trying to survive, there are those who have issues and security helps!

"Nice, neat and clean BUT …."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
I found this a very nice place, however, Inwas awakened at 3:15 am by someone Banging on my door, window and yelling! I called the front desk and they sent a security person to tell her to leave. Quite a shock and frightening! It would have been a great stay if not for that.

"Service from checkin to checkout was excellent."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
I have stayed in several hotel/motel chains and I have never received a call from the front office to see if everything was in order when I entered the room. A little thing perhaps but a huge step up in customer service. Well done.

"I had never heard of your website, but my nephew has hotel experience and mentioned it. This is the first time I have had to book a block of rooms for a family wedding, and I was somewhat concerned about how to go about it. Your website made it easy, and and I would highly recommend it." K.C. - Catskills, NY
