The hotel is nice, good location and big parking lot! The hotel provides WiFi that works most of the time well. The receptionist was nice. Not too helpful or attentive but check in was quick which was great for us. Maybe because she was alone. Room is pretty big and comfortable, bathroom is clean. Not enough light in the bathroom...
