I stayed here for over 40 nights starting in February. Upon check in I was slightly disappointed that the only room available was on the first floor. After about day 10, however, it was nice that I didn't have to get in/wait for an elevator daily, so it turned out to be not too bad since I was in the...

There is a pool and a modest fitness room with two treadmills, an elliptical machine and a fitness bike. There is also a rack of free weights. Adjacent to the lobby is...

Loved this property from the moment we pulled up to it. It is stunning from the outside and inside is just as great. Check-in was smooth, great parking, modern lobby, coffee ALL DAY and night. Breakfast was just right and never over crowded. It was nice to watch the news in the morning on the huge TV screen while eating...

We had a room on the fourth floor. It was clean and spacious. The bed was soft and the covers were comfortable. A table in the room was able to fold upwards into a desk-like surface which was very convenient. The shower was great. The only slight annoyance was that the elevator was a little slow, but they were nifty...

It's a very modern, clean, and nice looking hotel. The rooms are spacious and they have a good breakfast. The staff is very friendly and helpful. My only recommendation to them, is to change the pool towels, they are Really Small!

This is a clean, comfortable and modern-looking hotel on the main commercial drag with plenty of chain and other restaurants, stores, etc. nearby or within easy driving distance. My room had a comfortable king bed with small fridge, coffee maker, ironing board and iron, and Samsung flat screen TV. Big plus: a very comfortable chaise sofa seat -- a most...

I visited this property during a weekend fishing trip. The rooms were clean and spacious, lobby was beautifully designed. The front desk ladies upon check in were very accommodating and proficient. We will definitely return!

First the pluses. 1 The room was clean and spacious. 2 The front desk people were helpful. Now, my problem with this hotel was the noise. Every time somebody moved in the hall, I could hear it and I swear I heard the toilet flush in the next room. Bring earplugs or a sound machine...I won't be back.
