A decent hotel. Clean and mostly courteous staff. We booked on booking.com they stuck us in the basement. I've stayed in other rooms on the upper levels and they were much nicer.a young women at the desk was short with me. All the staff other than her have been very nice.

Understaffed is putting it mildly. Whilst the rooms and general service were Ok the dining experience badly let the hotel down and it was no fault of the serving staff. One girl in the restaurant in the evening. They did not pay her enough for the work she did and the breakfast was not much better.

Spent two different nights here in September. Check in was easy and the front desk and staff did a good job. The first night was fine with a clean and quiet room.

My review for the week is going to be mostly favorable. The location was good. The hotel is huge. Look around at the next 4 hotels in the area and you will be glad this was the one you booked.

Walking distance to restaurants and gas station. Hotel is off route 101. Friendly staff and check in was fast. Room was little dark but good size. We had king size bed. The bed was too soft for me and when my husband moved the whole bed shakes. Free wifi but no breakfast.

Typical chain hotel, the check in was easy and friendly. We were informed that our rate wasn't that great so they gave us free breakfast. If it wasn't for that we would not have eaten the breakfast due to price. The waitress was not overly friendly. The rooms were clean and the bed comfortable.
