    Always clean and comfortable. We like the separate bedrooms. The breakfast are usually good however we skipped the breakfast this last time. The location is close to our family. We have stayed here several times in the past two years.

    GrandStay does not have a shuttle; however, we would be happy to assist you with arrangements for a taxi to take you to Stephens Auditorium. Stephens is 1.3 miles away from the hotel.
