We stayed here just overnight but it was an excellent choice. The night front desk clerk Brian was very friendly and helpful. Our room was nice and clean. No issues at all! We would definitely stay here again!

Front desk staff was very helpful when we made an error in our reservation. The room was comfortable and the bed allowed for a good night's sleep. The ice machine was inoperable but I was able to get some from the restaurant.

Guest Jeanne M- Thank you for the review. We always enjoy having your group with us. I apologize that the ice machine on your floor was out of order. It did have a small issue with the internal plumbing. Parts were ordered, took a few days, and has since been repaired and functioning. We're happy that we found an option for you during that time. As always, thank you for your repeat business and for being our guest. We look forward to seeing you again. Sincerely,

Easy to find, and a good location around plenty of shopping. Far enough away from the interstate that it is not noisy. Professional services. Clean room. I did not try the in-house restaurant; nor the gym or pool. I'll stay here again.
