Really comfortable stay
Posted Jul 14, 2015
Let's face it, this isn't the Hilton or the Marriott. The room wasn't particularly fancy, but it was comfortable and practical. Comfortable bed? Check. Plenty of pillows of varying hardness? Check. There was cable TV. There was a coffee maker. There was even a hair dryer, which I've noticed many nicer hotels fail to include. The shower head may not have been gleaming with perfection, but the water had a comfortable flow. And the practicality goes beyond the room itself - for instance, there's free all you can eat breakfast every morning from 6:30 all the way until 10. There's a heated pool and a jacuzzi open 9 am -10 pm. And although we didn't really have to interact with staff besides checking in and checking out, I think they did an amazing job. Our room was always cleaned and finished by the time we got back, not once did we have to wait for them to finish cleaning which has happened to me at other hotels. All in all, this is a good little budget hotel. I'd stay here again.
** As other reviewers have mentioned, be warned that there is a $12/day parking fee. I knew about this ahead of time so I was not surprised or upset, but it can come as a shock to someone who is unaware.
