The hotel was clean, however, it was evident that it was in need of up-dating... which was in the process of just that! The staff was friendly. A nice touch was the coffee, juice and cookies that were offered twenty-four hours a day! For breakfast, there was a plentiful selection of hot and cold choices that included fruits, hot chicken...

I had not had the opportunity to stay in this hotel chain ever before. I had no idea what to expect. I felt very good in the reservation process, as the person was kind and patient. When I arrived at the hotel for check in, I first noticed how neat and clean the outside of the hotel appeared. I was... More

My husband and I made our yearly trek to the Happy Together concert. This was our first stay in this Inn. The staff was extremely pleasant; the rooms were very nicely decorated and CLEAN!!! Breakfast could have been a little better, but plenty to choose from.

We stayed here with minimum expectations but were pleasantly surprised. The rooms were really clean and updated. The staff was extremely nice and helpful. Overall, we were shocked since we've stayed in this brand before and were underwhelmed. There is a nice indoor pool as well as free breakfast and wifi.

I only stayed about 9 hours in the hotel, most of it asleep. It was clean and comfortable with a decent complimentary breakfast. The staff was very helpful, check in and check out were very efficient. Overall a great hotel and an excellent value.
