Good for the stay. It's got a nice lobby but the rooms are somewhat dated. Still was a comfortable nights rest. I would stay there again.

Front desk was very efficient at check in. Dining room manager Robert and Chef Andres went out of their way to make sure I was able to get something to eat that was soft due to recent dental surgery. Thank you for your help.
