When checking in, Nate was most helpful. The room was very clean and well lit. Breakfast is what you'd expect for a quick starter breakfast. Hotel is with in a mile of the Wharton Center and MSU campus. The only draw back was that the hotel had an inside pool but we had an exterior room. Hence the "Almost Perfect".... More
