The hotel staff were professional, understanding, concise & friendly. The property WITHIN the hotel was very nice. The pool was in excellent condition. The inside of the rooms were extremely clean & presentable. It was an excellent overall stay. Just a little awkward with the parking lot in the back with local/tourist pedestrians walking within or around the property which felt unsafe. But NOT the hotels fault. Highly recommend staying here.
