I spent approximately three weeks in this hotel this summer for various business trips. First, the outside style of the building reveals that it is not a brand new building, but the inside is modern and well kept. I have stayed in both suites and regular rooms, both are nice with fully functioning HVAC and nice, updated bathrooms. The channel... More

I have stayed there about 4 different times and I have NO COMPLAINTS. For the $$ and what other hotels in the area charge there is no other place that will get my visits. The hotel is old, but remodeled. When you shut the door you don't hear hall chatter or traffic. The bed is very comfy too!!

This was a last minute decision to stay here and checked in really late with no reservations and I was able to get a room. The hotel is in a perfect location and I felt safe staying here alone. It is also walking distance to the mall which has plenty of shopping, food, and a movie theatre. The pool was... More

I had a bay view room on a high floor. It was large, nicely updated, and QUIET. Check in was very fast, professional and friendly-- at midnight no less. The room and bathroom were extremely clean and the bed very comfortable.

Located close to a large shopping mall, so plenty of places to shop and eat. We had a cabana room which, compared to the previous hotel we'd stayed at that week, was huge. The bathroom was well above average hotel bathroom size, with a super king size shower. A separate living area and wet bar made it feel like we... More
