What a great surprise for the money! Beautiful lobby and clean lovely rooms. The breakfast that was included was worthy of any restaurant. An omelet bar creating a choice of individually prepared omelets. Many choices of breakfast foods...hot or cold along with a juice bar.

Congratulations on your daughter's wedding!

Found it on kayak.com, was pleasantly surprised. Rooms were decent, not overly fancy, but were clean. Our favorite thing was the breakfast, which was a complimentary full breakfast. Omelette bar, waffles, cereal, toast, eggs, sausage/bacon, biscuits and gravy, and make your own breakfast burritos. Has military discount, so check before booking on any discount site.
