The location for us was great and the staff was very helpful. Food was great! There was 3 couples and they accommodated us to be on the same floor and close to each other. There is a Hilton Garden Inn next door, so we went over there to have a glass of wine in the evening.

This hotel is clean and comfortable. This hotel gets a average rating largely because it's just a standard hotel stay. The hotel seems a little dated, the pool was very dirty (I could feel all the sand in the bottom of the hot tub and breakfast was just okay. This is a good hotel for a short stay but not... More
