We've been there for 4 nights. The staff was really friendly and breakfast is good. The cleanness was on average. G there if you want to sleep and take rest. It's near the UD shuttle stop, so you can go to UD easily. Ask Sara at front desk. she is so friendly.

This was my second time visiting this location and the service gets better and better! The front desk was very nice and even gave me extra food free of charge! The room to top it off was amazing with a view overlooking the pool. I would recommend this location to anyone looking for affordable and efficient rooms and service.

Beautiful rooms, delicious breakfast everymorning (especially the Belgium waffles I got to make myself!) I was able to bring extra food back to my room as well.
