This hotel is great. The staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome. When traveling alone on business, I always feel very safe here. The rooms are clean and very nice. Overall, a great place to stay. I will be back again, I’m sure.

I had an excellent stay with a clean room and no problems with noise, cleanliness, or anything of the sort. The staff was very friendly and helpful as well. I'd recommend this hotel to anyone looking for someone to stay in the area!
