Nice, new hotel. Room was clean however somewhat noisy. The air conditioner fan would cycle off when the compressor did and could hear everything in the room next door and below us. Did not sleep well at all. If you go ask if there is a way to stop the air conditioner fan from cycling, this will help keep the... More

I sincerely apologize to hear your room was noisy. I'm passing on your suggestion to my maintenance staff. We pride ourselves on being a warm a friendly hotel. Although this is no excuse, our breakfast person on that day is newer to the position and possibly got over whelmed. I will be addressing what issues she encountered. Thank you again... More

We stayed here for one night on our way from St. Louis to Memphis. We found it to be very clean, quite new and our room was well appointed. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Good value for our money.

We stayed here twice on our recent trip.. Both times we arrived early and were assigned a room. Large rooms, fast WIFI, great TV channel selection and tasty breakfast! Will definitely return. The manager checked us in - very efficient and professional.

We stayed here for 2 nights. Front desk staff were friendly and helpful. Room was clean, well decorated and spacious. Good sound proofing even thought there were quite a few guests including kids. All areas were very clean. The complimentary breakfast was excellent. Food was fresh and hot, good selection and 2 ladies on duty kept everything
