Great Place to stay!Great place to stay, room was wonderful, very comfortable. Breakfast buffet was good. I thought the Cafe menu was a little limited, but the food was good. All staff very friendly. We received several texts during our stay, asking how everything was going.

      Nice hotelWe really liked the hotel, however they did not give me the two free breakfasts that I was supposed to get. I only got one and since I left the paperwork at home I could not prove it.

        Decent hotel but overpriced for quality Hotel was under construction during our stay. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Room was clean but seemed kind of old and the A/C unit was extremely loud. If you are light sleeper you’ll be jumping in your bed every time the A/C starts. Overall experience was good.

        Nice hotel, very nice staff.My stay could have been a disaster had it not been for the caring and professional staff.

The accommodations ...
