Great business stay
A quick business stay. Everything was clean, quiet and comfortable. Front desk was helpful with a small request. Would stay here again. Loved the convenience of having both a coffee house and amazing Mexican restaurant steps away.

Happy Birthday Trip
The hotel is situated in a nice quiet area. There’s a restaurant attached to the property. There are restaurants and stores in close proximity. The hotel check in was nice quick and efficient. I received a nice bottle of wine with check in. There were two minor inconveniences with the hotel, first we did not receive any washcloths unless we went to the front desk and requested them (each day). Second there’s no microwave in the property and the hotel said it was due to COVID-19 but this is the very first time we’ve gotten this response from any hotel stay since COVID began. Even when there’s no microwave in the room, there’s usually one in the hotel for the guests to use. There is on site parking which was super convenient.

Good hotel for the money
This was our second visit to this property. For some reason the first visit seemed nicer. This time our room had an issue with the window and air conditioner. If you closed the window all the way, their was some weird high pitched whine with the air conditioner (maybe a pressure thing?) we had to leave the window cracked which led to us hearing the street noise while trying to sleep. it wasn't the end of the world. Our view was of the driveway below and the building across. We didn't come for the view anyway. We only had enough towels for 2 even though there were 4 of us but we grabbed more from a housekeeper at some point. Overall our stay was fine. The property is nice enough. We probably got a less desirable room because we arrived late. It was quieter during our first stay.
