I arrived from NYC, had a hard time with the car rentals and when I arrived and even on the phone everyone was so warm, nice and welcoming! Penny gave me advice on where to move and advised a book and gave her insight on moving and how to smoothly transition. She was amazing. Amanda and Chris(the GM) were so... More

Amanda was perfect! She needs to be promoted for sure. I had booked my hotel a week ahead of the day that arrived by accident. Amanda pulled some strings and helped me avoid some costly fees. I can't thank her enough, so amazing.

The first night somebody was blaring their hiphop music... More

What more do you need when it's... More

Not much positive to say about this place. Woman at front desk was apologetic and very polite, but despite check in time being at 3 I was not able to get checked in until 4:30. There were no towels in the room. They did eventually bring them. A hole in the wall where the front door handle hit it because... More

The rooms are satisfactory considering the price. The only thing is the location. Its far from the centre and there are no public transport available. Your best option is calling a cab. Apart from that, everything was good.
