Beautiful hotel lobby and clean rooms. We were traveling with three kids and the rooms were roomy, beds very comfortable and breakfast had something each I my picky kids could eat. We would stay here again. It is close to a great outlet mall and restaurants. We did not use the pool as we arrived late and left early.

I booked this hotel for my daughter's graduation. We decided to stay there when we visited her in the fall. I was nervous because it was very cheap. But...the place was spotless, the staff very friendly and the breakfast was good!! Wish she wasn't graduating cause I'd love to come back.
