Room was very clean, the bed was super comfortable and the staff was very friendly! Breakfast was very good. We have stayed here before and we will stay here again. We had no problems during our visit.

It's not a big menu, but they have an Indian cuisine as well as American. The women at a table next to us were eating the Indian food and they seemed to enjoy it. We had American and it was good.
