Outstanding front desk service! We were greeted promptly, and provided the most quiet room available. We were impressed that the hot tub and pool were ADA compliant. We enjoyed a quiet weekend away with excellent service and amenities!

After a long drive, I arrived to a cheerful staff, hot coffee and a rewards program already completed from my reservation info. The room was ready, very clean and quiet. Everything was in excellent condition. The WiFi worked well. Hot breakfast was excellent and my express checkout was followed with an email receipt.

We were cheerfully greeted by Jacob when we arrived. The lobby was clean and neat. The elevator was very slow, but we have grown accustomed to HIE elevators. The room was well done, with nice decor and granite/quartz countertops. It was a bit warmer than we like, so I turned the thermostat down from 68 to 66. (There is no... More
