Staff was very nice and helpful. The room was clean and roomy with comfortable beds.

Hotel was clean and updated. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The breakfast was perfect for what I desired to have and convenient even though the restaurant is outside. I had a very good experience and would stay at this hotel again if I do return to the area.

It was clean and comfortable. Kids loved the pool! Staff are friendly and gave some suggestions of places to eat nearby. Has Wi-Fi and cable. Parking is convenient and there are multiple entrances so you can park near your room. We will be back.
