Recent Reviews

Richard young couple July 17, 2024
Positives: This was a very nice hotel, easily located just off the interstate 40. The staff that I dealt with during our four nights stay were all very friendly and helpful. I had specially made a request for a room on as high a floor as possible, and was allocated exactly what I wanted. Thanks!
Negatives: Unfortunately, one fairly minor problem we encountered was there was no plug mechanism in our rooms bathroom sink. We did report it to reception, but it didn't actually get fixed during our stay, which admittedly was two days over a weekend. Mildly inconvenient when trying to have a shave.

Positives: The service was excellent
Lorri family with young children July 6, 2024
Positives: Exceptional clean room, pretty quiet area, free breakfast with all options, comfy beds, and is pet friendly (we did not have a pet but saw others enjoying that perk)
Negatives: Trying to navigate the area for restaurants to eat at.
Would absolutely stay again!
Evelyn young couple July 6, 2024

Positives: Location
Very good
Sabrina family with young children May 27, 2024
Positives: The property is clean and very dog friendly! There is a large area in the back of the property for dogs and thankfully it’s clean and grassy and they have doggie poop bags provided for you. The pet fee was only $30.
Negatives: Our room was on the dim side. The bathroom was very spacious (we had a handicap accessible room) so there was ample room for a wheelchair to maneuver. It was just a little on the dim side. I think the bathroom needs better lighting. But they are going through a renovation so hopefully this is one of the things that will be improved.
I will book here again!
