The rooms were Very clean. Beds were comfortable. Microwave and mini fridge in the room were clean. Good variety of food for breakfast. The coffee was good. Snacks, soda, and microwave meals were available for purchase at the front desk. There are two convenience stores within walking distance of the hotel.

The hot tub didn't work and the pool was cold.

Very kind staff. The woman at the front desk is a gem. I had a great food recommendation from her!

The breakfast was not terrific but I didn’t expect it to be! Hotel breakfasts are almost always cold eggs.

Great staff, clean rooms, love the bigger bottles of shampoo, conditioner, and body wash.

The only ice machine that worked was on the first floor and we were on the 3rd floor. Chlorine was strong as well for the pool. That was the first thing I smelled when we walked into the hotel.
