    Property is located right across the park and a lake. Good walking distance o many places. With the right room, you get a nice view of the lake. The only thing I didn’t like was that their elevator was a bit slow and one of the 2 available elevators was broken. Breakfast was good, although it would be great if they had bacon :)

    Not the cleanest environment. I found hair in the bathroom on the carpet and on the sheets

    DANGEROUS! We parked our car in the first stall of the hotel's parking garage right beside the lobby entrance door, in view of the security camera, with the car's security system armed. Overnight, the convertible roof was cut through ($6,500 damage to car to steal $1,500 of prescription glasses, which are useless to the thief). Hotel management had us fill out an incident report and did nothing. There was no courtesy call, no corrective action, no complimentary room, not even a "Sorry this happened to you in our parking lot." When asked to refund our ruined stay, the manager (and the manager's manager) refused on the grounds that we "booked the stay on Expedia and it would be an admission of liability." After the break in, we looked more closely at the security camera and found that it is not connected to anything, the wires having been removed a long time ago. This camera creates a false sense of security camera for the hotel's visitors, especially considering that the thieves almost certainly know the camera is disconnected.

    The hotel is nice and convenient location. Staff are nice. Great continental breakfast. The disappointing part was there were white stains on the bed skirts on both sides and on the chair. We have pictures of it. Also the elevator is just slow but stairs are easily accessible. I had one room and booked another for friends and they trashed the room which I am so sorry for and I will never book for another friend again under my name for that reason. I had gotten an extra charge that I wasn’t aware of until I checked my bank account so a call would’ve been appreciated. Very sorry for the room though.
