The hotel is clean and the staff is friendly and helpful. The breakfast was decent and the area well kept. The beds are a little stiff. The air in our room left a lot to be desired. It was loud and did not work that well. I meant to let the front desk know and I forgot to tell them.

This was one of the most friendly and accommodating hotels we have ever stayed at. The staff was so friendly and the hotel was very well kept. Hotel was pretty full and staff still managed to keep up with a very good breakfast and we will definitely be returning. All around great stay

We stayed here one night while traveling. Front desk staff was friendly and efficient. The property is clean and well-maintained. Beds are comfortable. The hotel was quiet but we were on the street side so we did have some traffic noise. The breakfast buffet was adequate and the breakfast hostess was very pleasant and helpful. Overall a good place to... More

Stayed here for a day and felt not bad for the money I paid. Close to the university and shops, good parking space, nice people, so I never had any trouble. But if you would like to stay for longer then I would recommend you to look for different location.
