The front desk staff was very friendly, especially the young lady working the desk during the day. She helped me with an extended check out as my flight was leaving in late that evening.

Location good. Staff friendly. Parking was awkward. Some noise in hallways during the night which kept waking my wife. Breakfast ok. Supposed to be complimentary but you have to pay for coffee or drinks if you want some. Menu limited if you want complimentary breakfast. Overall decent if you are on a budget.

While the room was comfortable it wasn't worth the money paid to stay there. Terribly outdated.

Rooms are very clean. Beds very comfortable with duvet bedding. After 12 hours on the road we made an error with online booking. Manager fixed the problem very satisfactorily. Would definitely stay here again. Great service.

The evening desk clerk was very pleasant and helpful. Room was nothing spectacular but it was more than adequate for our needs. We slept good.
