The hotel was a solid 4 stars, not a 5 star. The staff is great, but the facilities did leave a lot to be desired. The location is good. Example of facilities. The bathrooms had nowhere to plug in the hair dryer. I had to do my hair outside in the bedroom by standing in front of the wardrobe and stretching. Some of the room smelled musty and were uncomfortable layouts. The staff was great and very helpful. Overall, this is a solid 4 start hotel.

Everyone at this hotel was absolutely wonderful. Always quick with a smile, a kind word and an offer to assist in any way possible. We got to know a lot of the staff and learned about their lives as they learned about ours. I can't say enough about how great our stay was at The Rubens. It was almost sad when we had to leave to go home and leave our new friends behind. I would highly recommend this hotel.
