If you don't use the pool or gym, you'll like this hotel. It's clean with friendly staff and pretty much the only good TV I've come across in my recent travels--good reception, fast channel changing, and plenty of selection. But if you want to work out, which is vital for me and caused me to switch hotels, you're out of... More

Stayed here with my climbing team for our National Climbing competition. The staff was very kind and helpful. They even allowed us to hang out at the pool after ours so long as we kept the noise down. We had an excellent time here and the free breakfast was the cherry on top!

This hotel had the friendliest, most accommodating staff I've ever experienced at a hotel, hands down. Eli went above and beyond to remember us when we came and went through the doors, and did more than was expected to let us have a good time. Cece was incredibly nice and gave us the same courtesies, going out of her way... More

Stayed here for four nights on a business trip. The room was very clean and comfortable. The staff was excellent. Each person at the front desk remembered my name and always made a point to acknowledge me when I passed by. I don't think I have ever stayed at another hotel where I felt so welcome and at home.
