Comfortable, clean rooms with free breakfast. It's a little dated but very nice. The service from the front desk staff, particularly the manager (Soloman?) was exceptional. Minor concerns were dealt with immediately and even when I called the desk in the middle of the night when I heard someone outside the window (or neurotically thought I did) he went outside... More

Friendly staff , average stay same as other hotels of that price range. Poor security, Key cards were not working so staff had to let customers into their rooms. All they did was ask the room number and let you in with no check of ID.

Rooms were nice but not clean. There were cobwebs and dust around the edges of the room. The breakfast was limited and not very much selection. I found the parking lot on the small side. Not very good for larger vehicles.

Its okay for the night. Staff are very nice and friendly. The hotel is outdated and the furnature in the room wasn't up to par. Internet is very slow. Breakfast is average. Very thin walls so hear lots of your surrounding.

We were stopped for the night getting our vehicle serviced. The room was a perfect stop, clean, comfortable, great internet and quiet for being full. The servicing our vehicle took a little longer and the guest services allowed us to stay in the room beyond checkout time without issue. Thanks for the hospitality.
