Excellent rooms. Especially pleasant, helpful, and polite staff. Breakfast was hot and complete with eggs, bacon, potatoes, biscuits and gravy, and waffles. Excellent value. Only minor complaint was the covered parking spaces were a little too small for our Surburban. LOL

We were in town unexpectedly, and stayed here. After traveling all day with 2 kids we were greeted by a nice staff member (unfortunately don't remember his name!) who promptly checked us in, and gave us cookies and water bottles. Room was always clean, staff was friendly, location was easy. Rooms are not super sound proof and you can hear...

Breakfast was decent. Parking was absolutely horrible. We have a small vehicle but the parking spaces are not even big enough for a compact...

Stayed here to attend a retirement party. Hotel was very clean, remodeled rooms. Staff very friendly and helpful. The breadfast was very good. My only complaint is the toilet is so low, I felt like it was a grade school toilet. Pleasantly surprised at how nice the rooms were.
