    The staff were helpful and friendly. My room was very clean and comfortable. I like the location, and that they offer free parking. I researched many hotels in the area, and feel that this was the best value.

    The front desk and manager do a lousy job. There were disputes on rates when checking in and discounts promised were never given. Wrong charges were put on credit card and manager never responded to correct. Stay away!!!
