Stayed at the hotel for a conference. Great food, clean hotel, courteous staff. The suites are a good size and the beds and pillows are very comfortable. Great location off the highway. 5 minutes from the outlet mall and walking distance to restaurants & shopping.

A great place for a wedding reception. They took care of everything. The banquet room was ideal. All the guests enjoyed their food and service. The staff were wonderful with respect to dealing with our requests both before and during the reception. In the end it was a relaxed enjoyable affair. The costs was very reasonable. Highly recommended!

Soup, arrived barely luke warm. It was a thin, chunky tomato with a few vegetables. Only one lentil or piece a pea could be found in it.... More
