Place was decorated with modern furniture. No carpet.... it had laminate floors. Very clean. Friendly check-in staff. Area was quiet and there was a shopping center near by. I definitely would stay there again.

I found it very expensive for what it is. The hotel is located just by the highway so it can get pretty noisy. The room was not clean as expected and the extra cost for internet is pretty annoying too.
