Reviewed 14 January 2014

We stay here every February. Our work takes us here for a month. The hotel staff is wonderful, the rooms are clean and comfortable. If you have a problem just talk to someone on their staff and they will do their best to fix it. We will not stay anywhere else. It is like staying with family with out the family.

My family stayed at this hotel for 2 nights over Thanksgiving weekend. No complaints whatsoever. It was clean, comfortable and convenient to where we needed to be. The hotel accommodated my request for two adjoining rooms so my mother could stay next to us. Breakfast is not included in the rate, and we did not eat at the restaurant, so I can't comment on that. Bodo's is right down the street, though, and we love their bagels! I did not get a chance to use the pool, but it looked nice.

Nice staff - especially the lady at the front desk. Room was clean and ready to go. Restaurant had a delicious breakfast. Would stay here again for sure. Central to all the things we wanted to do. The Indian restaurant close to the hotel was very good.

we had been travelling all day, we found the hotel by chance. we asked the price, about $130. we were given a room, standard holiday inn, but very dated, it felt as though it was several years past it's refurb date. no matter we were hungry and thirsty. the bar was open with 1 table of diners and 4 people at the bar. we asked for a table for dinner and were told to sit at the bar if we wanted food and to order NOW, the kitchen was going home! the ordered 2 simple dishes and then some wine. the food was in my case just o.k., but my wife's [ she was really hungery was not. we ordered more wine and the barman told us the bar was shut. we were sat at the bar. he then left.

Dear Rowland:


Thank you for your feedback and taking the time to review our hotel.

Please allow me this opportunity to apologize for your meal service being rushed. The Food and Beverage team here takes great pride on providing our guest with a quality experience. I am sorry we fell short in this case. I have spoken with all the service staff on the importance of how to properly communicate with our guest our closing times. It was not our intention to make you feel rushed for your late night dinner.

All of our public space, restaurant, bar and conference area was totally gutted and renovated just five years ago. This week our architect completed the plans for exterior renovations, which we are excited to share should take place in the next 60 days.

Your willingness to share your experience is genuinely appreciated.


Sincerely,



Charles C. Friend
General Manager

I had the pleasure of staying at this beautiful hotel. The staff and services were excellent. I especially enjoyed the breakfast that was provided. Kimberli gave great service and treated me like I was her own. Keep up the great work!!

Comfortable bed & choice of pillows. Good reading lamp next to comfortable chair & ottoman. Free wi-fi. Good shower pressure and temperature. Noisy A/C, esp. when it shut off. Breakfast buffet - usual - scrambled eggs, bacon (nice & crispy);, potatoes, biscuits, gravy and grits.

A group of family members stayed here for graduation weekend. Although this facility looks very dated, the rooms were spacious, clean, and had comfortable beds.

This is located on a main drag (Route 29), but the rooms were quiet. There was also no difficulty at all exiting and entering the grounds, and there was ample parking even though the hotel was fully booked.

Across the street is an outdoor shopping complex, and there is easy access to the University.

For a long weekend stay this was fine, but I probably would pick something else for an extended stay.
