Natalie was friendly, nice smile and very helpful, When no one was able to help me , she took the time to go above and beyond to accommodate my needs. Thank you for having an intelligent person that can make good decisions, and actually cares about her job.

The location is convenient and it felt like a regular apartment. It had a laundry facility and basketball court as well as swimming pool. Enjoyed the free hot breakfast. The staff was friendly and kind. I just didn't enjoy watching some people eating breakfast in their pajamas. I heard that this hotel houses some displaced people in addition to tourists.... More
