The hotel was very clean and the staff friendly. The price was right and I would stay there again. We were there for graduation and the location was great and easy to get to. Close to the school and shopping. The free breakfast was good and plenty.

When we checked in the hotel, the staff was very friendly and helpful. I was recognized as a club carlson member and our room was upgraded to a king suite that made a brief trip enjoyable. The breakfast was great. We will stay again if we are in the area.
