This is nice property in a great location but some important features in the room were lacking. There were no drawers and only a small table top ironing board. The bathroom and shower were excellent and the bed was comfortable.

Liked: Cleanliness
The location is great. It is close to the downtown shopping area, restaurants, and the lake. Great location for people who like walking around. The hotel looks great from the front but rooms are very small. I felt it was over-priced for a such tiny room. No bathtub, just a shower. The room was renovated to look modern and clean, but it only had a jail-like tiny window that cannot be opened or cleaned. They said breakfast was included but it was just coffee, cereal, banana bread, and packaged croissants. Check-out was a terrible experience. There were 2 men in front of me trying to resolve a double charging issue with a front desk person who seemed to have no problem-solving skills. I was waiting behind of them for long time and nobody said anything or assisted me. I had a plan for the day so no longer was able to wait. I left keys at the counter and left. I should have done that much earlier.

The website listed a hot tub but none on property. Staff were unaware but said they would fix. Booked two rooms but they were on different floors. Rooms were clean, and bathrooms fully stocked. Area had many restaurants, and the lake was very close. Parking was limited. Continental breakfast was more than sufficient.

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Property was horrible. Booked 6 months in advance and I was given a room in the basement with bars on the windows! It was like a jail cell! Breakfast was horrible! on the website there are pictures of a hot breakfast when in reality all you got was cookies and muffins! When confronted with the breakfast issue the staff just cited the pandemic. Staff did give me a discount for the room when I complained but the whole experience was horrible. DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOTEL!
