2/5 Poor

Traveled with family and small children
Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I was very disappointed with the problem at check in. We were given the room that we paid for and upon entering that room it was not cleaned yet. I understand that happens. I went back to the desk and when they were trying to find a room for me I was told they could work with me more if I would book directly with them next time and not a third party.

Liked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
Rooms were large and comfortable. Many unattended children running around halls. Hallways were dirty. Pool view room really did not have much of a pool view. Pool hours were not followed as posted.

The neighboring shopping and restaurants made it easy to get some good food. And the pool area looked really fun for kids since there is a water slide

5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The bathroom tub didn’t drain very well and the front desk was sadly short-staffed. Otherwise, my stay was very comfortable and pleasant. I would absolutely stay at this hotel again when in Rochester.

I was disappointed with our room, booked a king “suite” and was no bigger then a standard room size This place has been updated from when it was the Apache Inn but still Could use help in the rooms, smelled like stale smoke We come for the pool area! If it weren’t for that it’s nothing special. The staff here are excellent, hardworking and super nice
