Great experience. Rooms were big and clean. We stayed there with young children so the fact that this is an all non-smoking hotel was a big plus. Breakfast was really good. I was expecting toast, cold cereal and coffee. We got that plus eggs, sausage, potatoes, waffles.... My daughter attends HSU so I will be back whenever I visit again.
