Very Nice :)
I was only there for a night but it was a good stay! the hotel was nice and the staff was super friendly. The wifi was a little slow but that's normal for a hotel. It was only 10 min from my meeting and traffic wasn't bad at all. Would definitely stay here again.

Poor1.0 / 5
Was very disappointed. Booked online and paid up front. We hit traffic and an accident which delayed us by an additional 2.5 hours. We checked in fine. When we went to the room there was a terrible smell. So we put on the air conditioner and took our grandson for a swim in the pool. The jacuzzi was not working , they had it roped off. We went back to the room after about an hour as we had been driving for about 5 and a half hours. There still was an smell. I took a shower, there was not a exhaust fan in the room, so it was full of steam,which spelled out into the room when I opened the door. The carpet in front of the bathroom door was ripped, really a trip hazard.I am 69 ,my husband is 76 years old, we where tired so we just went to bed, if not we would have just changed rooms. The breakfast was a disappointment, sign on pancake maker "out of order". Biscuit hard , bacon not cooked enough. and eggs overcooked. We were in room 114 if you would like to have it checked out. The pool on the website is not at all what is at the hotel. The beds did not have spreads on them, only top sheets. Have pictures of the beds and very ripped carpet. Did not expect anything like this in this hotel.
