The location is perfect. Easy off and on for I95, but rooms are quiet. Staff is friendly. Raj, at the front desk, has the perfect balance of being friendly, helpful and getting one checked in quickly.

We were returning from a visit with friends in Upstate New York. Sunny was extremely helpful and courteous. We needed a pet-friendly lodging and he was most accommodating. The room was clean and comfortable and breakfast was delicious. Easy on and off to I95. we will be back!

Very clean, very pleasant staff. Sunny was extremely helpful. Convenient to interstate 95, easy on easy off. The landscaping was well kept, no litter it seemed like a very safe place to stay. The pool was a pleasant surprise, also neat and tidy. I'd stay here again!

We enjoyed our stay here. The room was clean and spacious and the staff was friendly and helped us with any questions we had. Breakfast was really good, especially for such a low price! There's a lot of different food choices (cereals, waffles, bagels, muffins, many different spreads). The only thing that would make the rooms more comfortable is to... More

Not bad, but not a great hotel. The people at the desk are very nice, and very patient with no complaints. The regular rooms are ok, and a bit itchy. The suites are much cleaner, less debris, the bathrooms in the suite are more comfortable , and the beds are more comfortable.

I stay at this hotel just about every week. I've come to know the staff here very well and they've also come to know me. On arrival after a hard day at work, I have always been greeted with a smile and by name with some pleasant and fun conversation, especially by Sunny at the front desk. No matter how... More
