Stayed here during our road trip up the coast. It was really nice with free breakfast. The location was great also with a very short drive to the main area of State Street. I was surprised because the price was so reasonable and the hotel so nice. The staff was also very accommodating and friendly.

My family and I stayed at this hotel for my wedding weekend. I had called a few months prior to our wedding date and the manager set up a block of rooms for us.

Reasonable priced. The hotel was attractive and clean. It was centrally located and convenient to bus transportation. The staff was very friendly and quick at their duties. Only problem with the hotel is that it has poor wifi signal in the rooms.

Surprisingly great stay! Beautiful, modern room. Check in was right on time and efficient. Pool was very big and heated. There were families with small children swimming in it even when it was raining. Gym is small, but more than adequate for a good workout. Breakfast was quite decent - cereals, oatmeal, waffles, eggs, bacon, pastries, juices, fresh fruit. What...
