The staff was very helpful - made sure we were set up in a room close to the other family members and also close to... More

The lady checking in was rude, not helpful and my husband was so upset we walked out and went to another hotel. She was busy on her cell phone and did not look up until finally my husband said will you please help us. Never looked up once.

Very clean and the staff very friendly and helpful. I had unfortunately booked our wrong on the right night. They were able to get us the same room at the same rate. I spoke with the Manager in the morning and she was very helpful in fixing my mistake. Thank you to you all!

Mike was at the front desk when we finally arrived and check-in was swift. The room was clean - no funny... More
