    We needed an off and on exit for the trip we were taking. This is a great location. The breakfast at the restaurant was very good. We also love the decor. I used to travel here for a yearly conference, and this brought back a lot of memories.

    We were on the first floor, and it was a little noisy with cars outside. The room was a little stuffy.

    We stay at the Desmond in August of each year and have always been very pleased with everything. Other than our other comments, we enjoyed our stayed.

    we had a room in B building right on the courtyard. A convention was going on and it was so noisy in the room had trouble sleeping. Room air conditioner rattled and rolled and was very noisy. Elevator in B bldg. rug was dirty.

    The amenities and staff service were excellent. The food was very good also. Although the hotel was very busy they went out of their way to accommodate my needs.

    The only negative was the smell of dampness and mold in the room when I first arrived. Then it diminished as the AC ran for a couple of days.

    Excellent service, variety of dining options on site. The design is quaint and full of charm.

    Some common areas need some refurbishing.

    Pool, hot tub, restaurant, staff, room

    Breakfast of any kind was not included with the room. For the price they should have at least provided some kind of breakfast meal, even continental. Also no rooms with pets allowed. These two issues were a big negative, and that's why I wouldn't book there again.

    Convenience. Did not have to leave hotel for anything. Services were all there, dining, bar, physical\ exercise, swimming. Television was excellent. Wakeup was perfect. Accomodation could not have been better. Hotel enployees were cordial and well informed. Will stay there on next trip to area, and would recommend to everyone who is going into that area.

    Bar prices were a little high, more than in my home area. Otherwise everything was great

    we were there as a large group (all separate bookings) for a family party. The location was very convenient.

    The reservation staff -accidentally, I'm sure- ruined the surprise party by listing the names of guests with the same last name when my mother checked in. As a result, she learned at check-in that all her sons were coming for her b'day. VERY DISAPPOINTING!!!!!!

    Very enjoyable stay for a family reunion/birthday. Kristen at front desk was very accommodating upon check-in, and I was very impressed she remembered my name on check out the next morning!

    I loved the courtyard, especially having a room that had a balcony overlooking it. I liked the decor, so refreshing. Not the usual "hotel" look.

    The restaurant had NO service for sunday morning. My husband waited 45 minutes for his food, which never arrived

    convenience, comfortable furnishings, nice staff.

    sound proofing between rooms -- it was a bit embarrassing to listen to very loud lovemaking in the middle of the afternoon from the room next door and to hear them even in the hallway!

    The property was well kept and comfortable. Very nice Tavern and restaurants.

    The room decor is a little dated, bathrooms could use an update but it was clean and functional.

    They used to have really nice rooms opening into a spectacular pool area. Now the pool is gone, the courtyard shabby and the current pool a joke. Rooms worth about 50 bucks more
