We only spent one night here but enjoyed the quality of the room. The dining area is upscale for a hotel in this price range and the breakfast was very good.

Beautiful hotel lobby and clean rooms. We were traveling with three kids and the rooms were roomy, beds very comfortable and breakfast had something each I my picky kids could eat. We would stay here again. It is close to a great outlet mall and restaurants. We did not use the pool as we arrived late and left early.
