I highly recommend this hotel. The room was unusually quiet for a hotel, I slept great. Which is very hard to do when traveling. The bed and bedding was very comfortable. The hotel is large and has an indoor pool and weight room. It's very nice inside. Really like the layout.

This is a beautiful, very clean, and comfortable hotel. I attended a conference which went off almost flawlessly. The only negative I could even mention was they seemed short handed, as the sweet girl trying to handle the coffee bar was so covered up they had to close it down for about half an hour so she could cover for...

We stayed here for a volleyball tournament and other than a few things the overall stay was pretty good. I'll start with the good. First the location is amazing. The hotel is close to restaurants, and shopping. The area is nice and quite without a lot of traffic. The breakfast was good. The lobby is huge and a good place...

This is the closest (attached) place to the Sloane convention center, so some of our party stayed here for a trade event at the center. The hotel amenities are nice and the staff is very friendly and helpful... and understanding of those who forget that BG is in the central timezone.

Large room, very comfy bed, dependable wifi and golf course view. Convention Center next door and shares parking lots. Close to all necessities, smooth, easy traffic flow and 1/4 from BG...

We needed a hotel with an indoor pool and ended up here. This is not a very clean hotel. Our room had multiple visible sticky spots on all tables and the back of the toilet. I moved the chair ottoman and there was a huge chunk of candy stuck to the carpet under it. They offered to move us or...

There was a pageant going on and there was only one elevator working. This was a one of the biggest pageants going on. I came all the way from Louisiana.

This is a conference facility adjoining a large conference center. Our only visits have been to attend conferences. Therefore, rooms can be noisy and not overly spacious. Restaurant and bar can be crowded and noisy at times. Eggs cooked to order.is the best feature of the breakfast bar. The hotel offers an indoor swimming pool and work out room. A...
