Gold Star service!!! What an incredibly friendly and helpful staff. Jessie, the manager was so polite even while handling an intensely busy season. Carl, new staff member in the restaurant was able to turn a very long wait for food into an opportunity for great service. We felt special, thanks to him. We will stay here again!

First and foremost , this is a franchise location meaning that it's pretty poorly maintained. My room had a lamp hanging from the wires above the table, cracked tile in the bathroom, grime all over the shower head , and a red stain on the floor next to the bed. The breakfast buffet was mediocre at best and weekdays shuts... More

The lobby is very nice. The room needs an upgrade. The 2-room suite had a sleep couch -very uncomfortable- in the living room and 2 double beds in the bedroom. Neither bed came anywhere close to the comfort standards of comparably priced hotels. One member of our group of 3 became ill and returned to the room around 1.30 pm.... More
