GOOD (3.7 out of 5)

Very Good - 4.0 out of 5

James, visiting Blue Cross Arena Fri, 25 October 2013

Overall it is centrally located, with nice helpful staff. I think that a bottle of Pepsi purchased at a vending machine down the hall from your 179.00 dollar room should be much cheaper than 2.25 - that's ridiculous! But this is common at all hotels these day. I would stay here again based simply on location and staff.

Liked: Very pleasant room - nice and clean.
Disliked: Twelve dollars for parking plus jacked up price since an event was being held at Blue Cross Arena.

Micheal, Whitesboro, visiting Water Street Music Hall Fri, 21 June 2013

Price was reasonable. Walking distance to Water Street Music Hall. Staff was nice. Had an escalator in the lobby which was cool.

Liked: Sports bar on premises.

I found this hotel to be in a great, central spot. I have stayed here 2 times - once for business and once for pleasure, but both were only overnight trips. The staff are friendly, the rooms are clean but dated - the one negative I have had was with the bar staff who seemed very slow and not very customer service oriented. The rest of the staff were excellent. I would definitely stay again if I was seeing a concert at the Blue Cross Arena - it was less than a 5 minute walk down very well lit streets.

Liked: Very friendly staff. Very accommodating.

Very good

Liked: The location was central, and within walking distance to the Blue Cross Arena. The breakfast waffles were delicious.
Disliked: Checking in for the evening was very slow, at one point there was only one staff available. The second staff brought on to assist was new, as such they were overwhelmed and made a mistake with my payment.

Liked: Good breakfast buffet, the hotel was a little out dated and the bathroom didn?t have a fan. The location was amazing. Everything else was as expected.
