4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Really a nice property, and while we didn't interact much the staff, everyone was courteous and helpful. The only reason I give it 4 stars rather than 5 is the access: it's really quite awkward to get into and out of -- not just the first time but every time. Once you've made it into the parking lot, everything is great.
