Hotel had quick elevators. Located off main road with plenty of parking yet quiet. Although I did not utilize, the indoor pool area looks like it belonged in Europe. Wall lined with wood looked very nice! Staff was friendly and helpful. I had late checkout which worked out well. Comfortable beds, HVAC worked well as did the internet. Up to... More

The rooms are very clean, the staff were great the breakfast is very basic. The doors to the room need sealing around them the noise from the hall is loud and the gap is so wide that the noise and light stream in. The doors also bang constantly and loudly. Otherwise it was great place to stay bed was comfy.

This hotel is nice and clean. The room was spacious and the beds were comfortable. There wasn't a great selection for breakfast, but what was there was good. It is conveniently located just off Hwy 24 and right next to BW3s. I would definitely stay here again if in the area.

Stayed here one night while visiting family. Chose this hotel because it was a bit cheaper than Hampton Inn, and the Trip Advisor reviews were pretty close for the two. It was fine...nice staff, clean and pretty comfortable. Wish there had been a little more thought put into room design; for instance, the bedside lamp (mounted on the wall) is... More
