“Nice !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

The place is next to some restaurants and you can do it by foot. To us it was like to feel the true american experience in this kind of hotels. It was the first time in a hotel like that and we really enjoyed. Bed was confortable and the bathroom was ok. The wifi was good and the parking is really easy and large. Good choice.

Front desk staff was very friendly and accommodating. I like the layout of the building, on a buisy street yet set back away from the sound of traffic. Very peaceful nights to sleep. Very comfortable bed, I love the pillows! Very clean room, the housekeeping staff always made my bed and left me nice clean towels and a fresh room, was so nice to go back to after a buisy day. I will definitely stay here again.

almost good hotel to stay near by airport. it take half an hour to go reach downtown by taxi $25 approx or more during evening. nice place to stay, no near by restaurant for lunch or dinner , only McDonald is option. swimming pool is available but not worth like to be.
