The only bad thing I have to say is not enough parking. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. Always smells great and very friendly service. Recommend to familys, couples, friends, and business trips.

Everything went well. Room was clean. There was not a remote control for the TV in the room called front desk and she brought one to us. No complaints.
