I absolutely LOVED staying at this property!! They kept the offfice open late since we did a late check in & everything was perfect! Exactly as it’s shown in the pictures! Will definitely stay again! So close to everything you need. We didn’t drive more than 5 min in order to pick up food, drinks, or gas. DEFINITELY RECOMMEND!!

The room is very nice but the bathroom area needs a bit of updating. The staff person I dealt with was really amazing. I highly recommend this place for the customer service.

They have remodeled since our last visit and the rooms are great. The only improvement would be the coffee and that’s it.

The Bed was the most uncomfortable bed I have ever slept in. Both my fiancé and I had a horrible sleep and our backs were aching the whole day after. We barely slept with how uncomfortable it was.
