With so many hotels to choose from, it can be hard to find the perfect place for vacation. Well, this property is pretty close to it! Rooms were large and clean. Multiple AC vents, microwave, fridge, coffee maker. Indoor pool with spa, outdoor spa and a small pool with a slide and a little lazy river. Hot breakfast included

Great hotel. We have stayed here many times and not had a bad experience. Everything is wonderfully clean and fresh. Rooms are just the right size . Walls are not thin. Breakfast is the best of anywhere we have ever stayed and we travel all over the US. Staff is oh so very friendly and go out of their way... More

My husband and I stayed here for 1 night. We did not have a reservation and had no problem getting a king bed room. The hotel appeared newer. Our room had a balcony overlooking the parkway. There were several wasp nests on the desk area and beneath one of the chairs, so I stayed inside. My husband seemed to enjoy... More

I was not overly impressed with this property but, gave it a bump from 3 stars to 4 stars based on the breakfast. We stayed in one of the deluxe rooms (a small Jacuzzi tub and a Fireplace) which, may have made the room seem so small. The bathroom was small and the two different doors were weird to negotiate....

I stayed with my daughter's high school band. I was very impressed with this hotel. Extremely nice! The hot tub was amazing after a long day with teenagers! And they have the best breakfast I've had at a hotel. Would definitely stay here again!
