We stayed at this property as chaperones to a small high school group. The rooms were very clean, and despite facing the roadway, I was very pleasantly surprised at how quiet the rooms were at night. We would have liked to have somewhere with a continental breakfast, but there were microwaves and fridges in the rooms, which made it easy...

Ms. Mills was very accommodating and reassuring when my reservation wouldn't show up on the website. Room was clean and comfortable, but small. Next time we will upgrade for more "walking around room". Very good customer service, both on the phone and in person.
