I was impressed to see that the hotel had a pool table, bar, and several lounging areas right in the lobby. Hot breakfast was available (for a small fee) and a restaurant was attached to the property. Other dining places were in walking distance! Valet parking was available (if you wanted it for a small fee). The hotel itself was clean and the staff were very friendly. I was recommended to stay there by a family member and I will definitely recommend this place to other people! I enjoyed my stay!🤓
