Clean and comfortable hotel. I was on a business trip, however, the family rooms are ideal if you have young children with you, there is a small activity area next to the kids beds and they have their own TV. Generous parking space and good breakfast choice.

This hotel is a must visit! Checking in was so simple and gave you all the information from the get go, when checkout time, breakfast times, etc. All the staff were polite, well dressed and helpful, they even laugh and joke with you which is very comforting.
