Well run and comfortable place to stay. Many restaurants and store within driving distance. Pool area was kept in great shape and the service was top notch. Bed was very comfortable and allowed me to catch up on my sleep.

It's a good hotel, clean and have a little bit of everything to make our stay better. Staff was really helpful providing the crib I asked for. Breakfast is what you pay for, bread, yogurt, cereal and coffee. Overall, a great stay.More
