This was the first time I used trip advisor to book a hotel. The process was quick and easy. It's always hard finding a place for the first time that's near where you need to be.

Best place to stay in area...only negative is no hot tub. Breakfast is very good and the server is very accommodating. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. The cleaning staff were helpful and any extra items that we needed were provided quickly. Many restaurants were close by as well as shopping needs.

This hotel has the standard fare....frig, microwave, coffee maker, etc. but it also is quiet and comfortable. We had a room on second floor above the entrance and I thought it might be noisy; not so! The bed was comfy. The staff was friendly and helpful.

Stayed one night for business. Choose this hotel due to location and recently renovated. I was very pleased with the room, staff, and breakfast. Fitness room was small and cramped with a lot of equipment but it was also clean!

It is a clean and appealing property with a staff that exemplifies southern hospitality. In addition, they present a breakfast buffet that offers so many choices that allow one to eat healthy or be indulgent. The rooms are quiet and comfortable as well.
