“Okay but not great”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

The bed was fine and I got a room far away from the elevator which was all good. A microwave and mini-fridge would've been nice. However, all day and night Saturday, no one from housekeeping ever came up to service my rom and I notified the front desk twice!

Reviewed 20 May 2014

Spent a week here on business. Nothing but good things to say about the staff. We commented on the dismal Internet to Myrna (the restaurant manager) at breakfast...they had a technician out that day and things were way better by the afternoon. Facilities are clean and nice, but nothing fabulous. They could use more comfy chairs near outlets, and faster Internet access for business travelers. They are in the process of renovating the entire hotel, so things are likely to improve. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: The rear of the building faces the river channel. Boat traffic and some scenery to watch.

Although the building itself seemed a little old, my room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. Common areas were also clean and updated.
