Great Stay
There's a lot to be said for being able to park at your door and not having a floor above you. Also liked the tiled floor in the room, quietness of the area, comfy bed, and great service at front desk. Also had a view of the mountains. Will definitely be back to this hotel.

8/10 Very good

We have allergies and it is always hard to find a hotel that offers non pet occuppied rooms. This property is clean and has very comfortable bed. We also appreciate that the flooring is laminate, which is more easily cleaned. Staff was very accommodating.
