Excellent service!! The young lady at the front desk was so accommodating . We arrived without a reservation . She assigned us a room and in a short time we were resting comfortably in the cozy bed. The room was very spacious and extremely clean. The beds were great really comfortable. Overall fantastic!

As you would expect from this chain this hotel is clean and the staff were attentive and proficient. Unfortunately during our stay the computer system was being updated and our room keys had to be repeatedly reprogrammed. I`m sure that this has now been resolved. The only real downside of this hotel is the noise from the road, which even...

It's almost as if they lost momentum and gave-up. For example, the sink is new but the wall paper/decor in the bathroom is old and peeling. Same goes for the rest of the hotel room....
