The entrance to the hotel is nicely updated with a warm and welcoming front desk staff to attend to your needs. They were very helpful with providing "local" directions to surrounding areas of interest. The restaurant was clean, great food, and wonderfully staffed. We had a room over looking the lush landscape and the pool which we did enjoy during... More

Hotel was good, nothing stands out from the stay. Room was good, bed was comfortable. That's all you really need. The vending machines in the hallway were nice, we were able to get water after getting back late one night needing water.

Stayed here for 5 nights and 6 days on business. Pros Pretty clean, food ok, staff pretty nice. Cons Altough the hotel appears to be updated fairly recently it needs more thank just paint, carpet, and decorations. In general an old property. Thin walls, no elevator, and very slow service. Beds aren't the greatest either. Unfortunately, wouldn't stay here again.... More
