I came in with my daughter and the service was great. The decorations and breakfast was astounding. Rene and Ami were very helpful with showing us nearby restaurants and extremely friendly when we asked for assistance on the hotel computers.

Best customer service from Tisha that I have ever received. I use to travel a lot for business and have never felt as welcomed and cared for as she made me feel. We were greeted with a smile and gave us travel information to our next destination. Tisha made a connection through small talk and when you are super tired...

This place is lovely... The girls needed a weekend away and this place was just perfect. So surprised to receive an adorable little basket with wine, chocolates, and snacks. Paired perfectly with our weekend. Thanks again Ami. Cheers! P.S. The mini kitchen in the room was the bomb.com!

It's in the middle of nowhere, 5 cars for a huge place, you can see the ripped shades and curtains from street, building was in various stages of dilapadation. I've stayed in some roach motels better than this scary place. RUN from this hell house!!!!!! Only dopers wood rate this place good bc no one else will care here.
