My husband and I stayed the day here for a break on our road trip and we lived it! The staff was kind and cheerful, room service was delicious and one of the main managers was so nice to personally ask us about our stay. We will definitely stop by this location more often!

Nice hotel, clean and comfortable rooms, property nicely maintained, good breakfast, but what truly makes this place shine is the quality of the people who work there.

I have been staying at this property on an extended business trip for the last few months. It is a very nice property, but it is not located in a walk friendly location.
