Needing a hotel for the weekend to visit college Son, this fit the bill. Staff was super welcoming and friendly all weekend. Pool was ok, not very big and no hot tub. Lobby worked great for playing games after dinner. Room was nice but a little small for the pull out couch. Great Staff!

I have stayed at this hotel before and had a great experience. This time, the staff was exceptional but the heater did not work and we received space heaters until it was fixed the next day. the staff was Very helpful and we were not charged for the first night because of the problem. Otherwise, the stay was enjoyable.

The hotel was clean and the staff very helpful. Our meeting went well and the hotel staff was very accomodating. The WiFi could have been quicker in the meeting room, but I have found this to be an issue at many hotels.
