We are always greeted with a warm smile at the front desk. The rib eye steak is superb. Home away from home.

Looked at several other hotels. This was the best value. The staff even gave us great suggestions for dinner. Pleasant stay. Minimal breakfast.

The orange room is cool. But if you don't use this app it cost $233 a night. The room is very modern. The upgrades are cool. The lamp has USB changing ports. Very nice. Also has hi-speed Internet. COOL
