Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Bright clean room, great lighting. Staff very nice. Room was small, but I think they have larger ones. Strangely, the television was undersized and I had to move closer to see it properly. There is a Denn'y across the street. Close to freeway. Nice place, would stay again.
