A great place to stay! The suites were affordable and the staff incredible. Breakfast is also included with your stay. Someone is available at front desk 24/7 and they pick up the phone on the first ring. Highly recommend!

My only complaint is rooms are getting a little tired and need updated. Room was great, service was great. Breakfast was good. Everything worked. We didn't spend a lot of waking time in the room and can't speak to the television at all.

This room was ok, but nothing to remember. The decor was outdated and there was several places that you could tell repairs were needed. Our sofa bed did not work and when we received a roll out bed, it did not include sheets or blankets. We were told that since we ordered a room with a kitchen we could get all supplies needed for cooking except bowls, but after calling and asking for these items several times they were never delivered so we ended up eating out the entire time, adding over $350 to our trip as a group of 6. Plus the food we brought to cook went untouched. If you just need a bed to sleep in, these will work in a pinch, but next time we will look for better accommodations for our family.

Throw up was left on the living room wall. An old customer’s door card key was left on top of the refrigerator. Found hair on tub & shower walls found a broken vape cartridge and dirty written on napkin under our bed. The room was NEVER sanitized or disinfected. It was TERRIBLE!
