Some of my shopping items were taken from the room and hotel staff reacted recklessly upon reporting the problem. The bathroom door was broken also. Managers and front desk staff extremely careless and they didn't help with the problem.

Most rooms feature several nice features, most prominently a separate bedroom and "living area" great if someone wants to rest but others want to stay up. Another feature... More

We only stayed one night - the staff was great, hotel was clean and bed comfy. The breakfast was a hot cooked breakfast. I would recommend it. We received a AAA discount so the price was right. It was perfect overnight stay for where we were headed.
