Our stay was great until the fire alarm went off at 6AM. The room was clean and comfortable with amenities like a mini frig and microwave. We checked out earlier then we expected to because of the fire alarm going off, but that wouldn't stop us from staying there again. They are pet friendly and have a nice area to...

We had a nice stay. Friendly and helpful staff and clean spacious room. My only complaint would be the wifi was not good at all during our stay. Even with that, everything else was nice enough that we would stay again.

Location - We flew in on a late flight and just needed beds. It was close to the airport and the GPS found it very easily. The parking lot was over-filled so we, as the late arrivals, parked in a make-shift row in the grass. Room - We had a 2 queen bedroom and it was clean. The beds were...

Nice place to stay. Clean, pleasant, quiet. . Staff at front desk were very friendly and helpful. The shuttle drivers (going and coming from airport) were right on time, courteous, and good drivers. This was the second time my husband and I have stayed at this location, and we look forward to returning next year.
