Friendly Staff - Great Location

Most of the hotel staff is friendly and professional. There was a problem with the toilet causing it to gurgle which was annoying. The maintenance man wanted to show me how to fix it if the problem continued. This rather annoyed me - I was on vacation and had no intentions of working on the toilet. Otherwise the room was clean and quiet and the water pressure in the shower was great.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

If you are using GPS to find this hotel, look up the Bob Evans on Horace Avenue or Eye Glass World on Faulkener Road. My GPS unit could not find this hotel - it got me to the intersection but told me that my location was on the left and that was wrong. The hotel is located off of Faulkener on a side street called Horace Avenue.

"Good Central location"

The hotel was in a good central location. For the price it was a fair value. The desk staff was very friendly and helpful. Would like to see more variety at the breakfast selections as it gets very boring having the same things every day. Due to this had to go to a restaurant a few days as was bored with the selections. All and all good value for the money.

Great Customer Service

The hotel is a bit aged, however, it is well kept and clean. The staff, from the counter to the room and everywhere in between were professional, accommodating and friendly. I cannot say enough about how great the staff and service was at this hotel. Furthermore, the continental breakfast is a feast. The breakfast offers waffles, cereals - cold and hot, fresh muffins, bagels, breads and doughnuts. Boiled eggs, juices, milk, coffee, fruit and yogurt were among the choices. The dining area always neat and clean. This would be a definite do again! Even if the hotel is older than other newer ones with similar prices - because of the service.
