I've stayed here 4 times in the last 6 weeks. Mary, Will, and Karla are all extremely helpful at the front desk. Anything needed, all we had to do was ask. Very helpful regarding info on the area. Thanks to Barb, Pam and Tiff they work hard at cleaning rooms. The entire staff cares about the comfort of each customer

Clean hotel inside & out, all kinds of shopping and restaurants within a half mile of the location. The hotel has a indoor pool, but it was closed for maintenance. It is a half mile from the freeway so it's ice and quiet.

Mary at the front desk helped my family with a number of things, going above and beyond her job description. We were accommodated with a number of amenities, from cookies and popcorn to an extra TV remote.
