Wonderful hotel. Great breakfast. Nice rooms. Super friendly staff. But... The pool was so literally full of chlorine fumes my family began having respiratory and skin issues. The only smudge on the hotel, but a big smudge overall.

Very nice location, I traveled with my 2 teenage daughters and I felt safe there. Nice employees and pretty decent breakfast options. Clean fitness area and clean indoor pool. Nice location for eating and close to outlet malls.
