Really was a nice place to stay. Very family friendly and stuff for the kids to do as well as a little bar for those that want that. Breakfast was the biscuit and gravy sort of thing with cereals, waffles and yogurt. Nothing exciting there. Room clean and all quiet. Only reason I did not give it 5 star was...

We came to let our kids swim and relax a bit. The hotel is in a great location. The pool was large and a lot of fun for the kids. Our room was nice. Loved the balcony. I also like that they stop kids from swimming by 9:00. Helps keep things quiet. The breakfast was great; plenty of variety (eggs...

Thanks for taking the time to write a review. I’m glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay. Kids love to swim in our indoor pool however they can sometimes be a little loud. Closing the pool at 9pm ensures that all of our guests can enjoy a great night’s sleep. Thank you for appreciating this. Thank you for comment...

This hotel is privately owned. Reasonable rates. Very nice. Good experience. Clean room. Restaurant on site. Breakfast included. Indoor pool. Would highly recommend. Staff very nice and helpful. One note...ask for towels when you check in. There were only two in the room.

This hotel is always clean. The staff is friendly and helpful. I pick this hotel over the more expensive Hamptons or Holiday Inns due to the quality of the service. The rooms are also very nice and the Lobby is large and inviting.

Nice hotel for the price, close to shopping and several restaurants. The doubles are full size beds which are ok, not extremely comfortable. The heating system was horrible, before the heat would kick on a burst of extremely cold air would come out and then the heat would kick on. I slept in the bed closest to the unit and...

Really cool layout for a hotel, pool right in the middle, games, fireplace, & lots of space to relax. Close to many eateries and a few businesses. Easy access on/off the highway. Hotel staff was friendly. Hotel rates for a standard room was worth it. Extra blankets given and delivered w/o any hesitation. Plenty of parking and kid friendly. The...
