Don't stay here a full size train stops at the Pepsi factory at 630am ,730am and at 9:00am on the weekends. It blows it's whistle coming in the station and again when it leaves. I never would have stayed here if I would have known this and the hotel does not tell u when u check in.

Thank you for your review. We are disappointed to know you did not enjoy your stay because of the train. We are terribly sorry for this inconvenience. I can understand how this can create a disturbance early in the morning. Unfortunately, there is not a regular schedule for the train crossing near our hotel. Nonetheless, I apologize for this issue.

To say that your employees are real professional is to not say enough about them. They are superb to say the least. I know as I am a former training manager, and I use that knowledge in my job as a commercial insurance agent. First we start with Audrey at the front desk. She is a super smart person who... More

My husband and 18month old stayed here for one night and I was less than thrilled with the actual hotel. The room was small although it did have a fridge, microwave and coffee. We had a king sized bed but it took up the entire living area. With an 18th month old - you can imagine, the space shrinks quickly.... More

Very disappointed with the room I received for the price paid. The room was barely big enough for the king size bed. Only one elevator and it was in the back of the hotel. No complementary breakfast. I would not stay here again.
