My family and I stayed here for one night. The hotel was clean and kept up pretty well. We had a 2 room suite that was nice to have our child in another room. The breakfast was great. Also the pool was simple but all we needed. The only complaint is that the sleeper sofa had a saggy mattress.

Spent two nights at this hotel and it was an excellent choice. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast was hot and tasty. What more could you ask for. Will definitely stay here if in the area again. Thanks to the staff for a great stay.

There was a mildew smell as we entered our room. I didn't think this hotel was as clean as I've experienced in other Country Inn & Suites I've visited. For instance, there were lots of cookie crumbs on the couch in the lobby plus that smell in the room. Also, the man who checked us in was not welcoming at... More

The rooms are enormous, the staff very helpful, and the complimentary breakfast is a restaurant quality buffet - with many, many choices. My wife and daughter enjoyed the pool. Only two factors kept it from being a five-circle experience: 1) Though the bed felt good, both my wife and I woke up around 3 am with backaches that wouldn't let... More

The room was clean and the beds comfortable. We did not have a suite so no refrigerator, unfortunate. The bathroom was clean, but in need of minor repair and updating. The rest of the hotel seemed updated fine. Did not check the pool out. The breakfast was amazing, very good with lots of options. We would stay again.

The staff was very friendly and nice. A little tired but clean. Breakfast was very good and staff was always checking and refilling as needed. Coffee and cookies were always available. The location was very convenient for us. Quiet at night.

Nice place to stay. Staff is great and very helpful and the cookies are pretty good also. Breakfast is one of the best I have ever had and I use hotels 75+ times a year. Stay here probably 2 times a month. Could use some updating but as a former hotel owner that is a never ending battle.
