The room was very comfortable and clean, the staff was very friendly. The breakfast was not great but I think they did the best they could considering Covid.

Very easy to find. Pool was nice. Breakfast was not good. We ate toast.

Quick check in, nice and clean and quiet rooms. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

Lock on room door broke 2 times staff had to use crowbar to get it open.

A couple feedbacks: 1) The AC machine in room 247 needs to be cleaned. 2) The shuttle service was great!

Nice property and convenient to where we needed to be

Was not expecting a handicapped room, bit o.k.. nice view of the trash bins. But I'm only here to eat and sleep so the view isn't important.

Clean, great breakfast and friendly staff. Location was good.

Broken air conditioner in first room. Moved to second room, broken control of air conditioner. Toilet continuously running water, had to turn off valve. 2 day stay, coffee maker not cleaned or coffee replaced after first day.

Needed a hotel to overnight for my nephew's graduation. This hotel was perfect. It was a few miles away from the college graduation locale so it was very quiet and the amenities were great. My grandkids enjoyed the swimming pool and the restaurant on location was very good. We enjoyed breakfast next morning before we left for the graduation.

Just a quick stay overnight to rest while traveling. Nice facility with a very comfortable bed.
