Great Location and Friendly Staff
Great central location and good service. Next time I will not book a single room, as it was a little cramped. Will definitely stay there again when I travel in 2018.

The manager Jim was fantastic. He set us up in a wonderful room and really took the time to introduce us and to familiarize us with everything since it was our first time in the country we really appreciated it. We would love to come back and highly recommend it to all our friends.
