Hotel is a Holiday Inn, so the accommodations are standard. The room was a good size. The front desk and maintenance staff are friendly. Across the street is a Buffalo Wild Wings, and further down the road are many other choices. I would stay here again.

Arrived after midnight and was greeted by the Front Desk Clerk Lowell. He provided excellent customer service. Had no issues with my room and appreciated the great customer service that was provided. I travel frequently and I would definitely stay here again while in the area.

The hotel is nice, but a little awkward to get too. Kind of secluded but quiet. Room was nice, king bed was nice! Outlets on lights do not work. Suite was relaxing and nice to work from. Parking is limited so arrive early especially if it is raining.

How much is the pet fee?
is this a pet friendly hotel?
"Ask for a rooms without the squealing plumbing."
"Facing the front so no noise from nearby highway."
"Top floors, south side away from the ball diamond"
"I would recommend the 3rd floor. Being on the 1st floor was bad- you could hear every footstep from the floors above you."
"Main floor was easily accessable"
US$128 - US$178 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
