Clean basic rooms. Hotel staff was phenomenal. They went out of their way to accommodate our needs and were gracious. The room had ample space for the four of us and a desk/dining area that worked well to manage business while away from the office on our family trip.

“Check the actual room before you carry all your bags to the room and settle. We were able switch rooms in the hotel with the same king bed because our preference on room location. Higher floors would have less noise, of course.”

“If you need something special call the management ahead to make sure it is held for you. If you are booking through one of the many booking sites rooms are taken first come, first served. We booked a two queen sized bed room but when we arrived we were told there were only king sized beds left. Two adults and two kids plus 7 hours of driving -- I want my own bed. We asked if there was any way to change this and management took over and did some fancy shuffling and we had a two bed room. Management and staff were very friendly and helpful.”
