Decent, clean hotel. The breakfast included was good quality with good hours. We did not use the pool, but it looked clean. Nice amenities and really excellent staff. Lots of work crews at the hotel, so the laundry room was muddy and strewn with large plastic bags.

As this was obviously a location that has been there for a while, I was pleased to find that it was clean and well maintained although the AC units could use a tune up. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Breakfast was small but well stocked and tasty.
