From the minute we stepped up to the front desk, everything was awesome. The rooms are newly remodeled, huge, and very comfortable. The staff from the front desk to the restaurant are extremely friendly. Nothing, I would have changed.

I have stayed here multiple times. Overall it's great between service, cleanliness, and food. One huge problem---INTERNET IS BASICALLY UNUSABLE. It is absolutely horrific, you can not even check email. Not functional. Huge down fall. THIS NEEDS TO BE FIXED!

One of the cleanest and comfortable hotel I been in all year. Not sure how new this hotel is, but everything seems to be new. Great rooms with all the amenities that you could ask for, sleeper beds, great fitness and pool area. Quiet hotel with friendly staff. I would recommend this hotel.
