George sandona and his staff went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable and inviting. The entire staff was incredibly professional and very knowledgeable about area attractions, and directions. The stay at this establishment was one of the high points of our vacation, I highly recommend this hotel.

For 150.00 a night I would have expected a cleaner room. The toilet seat was dirty, the tub was disgusting. The room was dated. The good things were customer service, complementary water bottles and ice cream, and the continental breakfast was good.I will not be staying in this hotel again.

So friendly and even made sure that I received my IHG points. They told us about FREE ice cream for the kids later on that evening as well as 20% discount in... More

We stopped here for one night and was pleasantly surprised. The hotel is newer and has a nice decor. The rooms are extremely clean and the beds are very comfy. They provide a nice little breakfast as well as a little 'store pantry" next to front desk. Very close to highway and services.

We stayed at this amazing facility for two nights. The beds and pillows were super comfortable. The view was great. It's tucked away and seems secluded although it's right off the interstate. Best breakfast ever!!! Great staff! Free cookies, coffee all day and free ice cream at night.

Appears to be recently renovated. Room, property and grounds were very clean and well maintained. Staff was very friendly. They gave us bottles of water upon check in and had free ice cream from 8-10 pm.

Definitely a hotel of excellence, staff friendly and helpful, breakfast, icecream at night, very attentive manager personally speaks with guests. I'm from Puerto Rico and I felt that the distances to attractions like zoo, bush gardens etc, are very close. There are many restaurants nearby, supermarkets, malls, etc. Our stay was 10 days with a child of 4. If we... More
