    Superb

    Convenient to museums and area attractions.

    The shower was either scalding hot or freezing cold, with very little "just right" temperature water. Complained twice and was told the 2nd time that they were evaluating the plumbing system. A/C unit was very noisy when compressor came on and did not have a "fan on" all the time option with the A/C (or heat, for that matter).

    Fabulous

    The rooms were clean and comfortable and the housekeeping staff was very responsive. The swimming pool was very nice - and not crowded. We had a good stay there.

    The complimentary breakfast was just plain poor. Meager offering of food, absolutely no ambiance - very stark room with tables & chairs & trash containers. Not even a radio for music. The hotel staff recommends Betty's Cafe a few blocks west on the right side. Excellent food and very friendly.

    Very good

    Good service and good value.

    The carpet was stained all around the bed. The bed shows it's age from the body imprints from previous usage.

    Exceptional

    Quick in and out. Clean rooms that have been upgraded. Comfortable bed and a good tv. Fridge and microwave a real plus for a multi-day stay.

    Complimentary breakfast pretty marginal. Lousy coffee. Loud tv in breakfast room.

    I would describe the breakfast as more of a continetial breakfast.

    Very good

    When I booked the room I was confirmed for a King Bed. On arrival I was told none was available even though I had the printed confirmation for a King. I was very disappointed. Also, the breakfast offered with the room was cold cereal and coffee, very unappetizing and not what I would consider breakfast. So I will not be staying at the Hotel again.

    There was a bit of dust in the room and you could hear the busy road through the night

    Very convenient for visiting the Dinosaur National Park. Also an excellent Dinosaur Museum in the town, well worth a visit.
