Great customer service. Especially with brittany t. She was great. Me and some friends had a really good time there. The service was great and we had no issue at all when it came down to calling front desk.

between a highway and some commerciaml area, this is a typical low class business hotel. My company had booked me there and I hope it is the last time. Rooms are clean, wifi is good but the place has no soul. On the top, the aircon is very very noisy

This residence in is newer, modern, and very sleek, clean. Free parking, great neighborhood, but it is north of SD. Nearby golf courses is why we stayed. Free breakfast is completely awesome. Staff very friendly, rooms clean, new.
