First we were there because my father has a brain tumer we were going back and forth to the hospital.It was advertised online the rooms had a fridge neither one of our two rooms had one. When we asked they bought us really beat up non working (one froze everyhing the other didnt get cold at all.) We were charged $30 dollars a night to park there and were told they had a shuttle to hospital.No shuttle ever ran .. front desk said it was closed due to covid but we were told it was running before we booked so we paid parking there and at hospital. They refused to change our reservation when tests were changed at last minute and we ended up paying for night we didnt even stay because they refused to cancel. I just felt this hotel added to the stress of an already terrible situation . That said the rooms are nice it was clean and location was good . Sean at front desk was nice and did try to help us so not all bad I guess....

This hotel has recently renovated room they call Sleep Well. They have aroma therapy, lighting levels for reading, relaxing, sleeping, and waking. Plus the beds have new mattresses to help you sleep. My room was calming, the bed was comfortable, and I had a great night’s sleep. The bathroom had a tub (my request) but had not been renovated yet.

I just stayed at this hotel 2 nights ago. My room was very clean (and I used to be a hotel housekeeper, so I know exactly what to look for). The pool area was also very clean. The two front desk people were very friendly and helpful. I would stay here again.

exactly what was was needed! walking distance from destinations, easy parking, reaonableness re early check-in and car parking. Sunday a breakfast buffet was offered which we didn't need as in a hurry but the staff offered us an alternative quicker option.
