Great staff and clean rooms. The location is in a great place and quiet. The pool is well kept and whirlpool is very nice. Great price for location. I stay for one week. The breakfast staff is very helpful and friendly. The parking lot is well kept.

This is one of those hotels in which the lobby gives you false hope about how the rest of the property is going to be. The front desk lady was friendly, helpful. And that is the end of anything nice I have to say. My room was dirty and had stains on the bed and towels. The tub was dirty... More

Hotel is o'k, that's it. Well painted on the outside and inside corridors, but the rooms do not reflect on that.
