Very friendly staff. Rooms smell delicious and there is a kitchen in the room.. not just a microwave. Laundry is free and the gym is pretty impressive compared with other hotels. I'm a flight attendant, so I have been around in a few hotels.

Very good place to stay if you are spending more than the night. Comfortable, clean, and quiet. The staff is very welcoming and cordial. Highly recommended. It does have cooking facilities in the room. I would use my own paper plates etc. Does not have a hot breakfast. They do offer microwave meals and so forth for sale.

The hotel is located in an easy to find spot, is exceptionally clean well cared for. The room was spotless, and the staff was friendly and knowledgeable. There is a Bar-B-Q area next to the main building which is clean and very useful as well as a putting green for those so inclined.

Very decent suits, spacious and with a nice kitchen. Bathroom is average. In-room wifi is complementary. Friendly staff makes the stay more pleasant. There's a common bbq, and a putting range just next to the hotel.

The staff was friendly and the room was clean but very noisy. This is probably a good place for working crew type people on short term assignments. We were next to the door that led to an outside barbecue area (which is a nice idea since the rooms have a small kitchen) but the night we stayed there several of...

Very clean, modern, and they literally provide everything you may think of. I just moved here and I packed some extra stuff for the kitchen, but did not need it. :) Full fridge. Plenty of closet and drawer space. They provide housekeeping once a week. Staff is friendly and courteous.

I enjoyed the week I stayed here and the room was updated and nice. There was fresh coffee in the lobby and the front desk gentleman in the morning was very nice. Bed ' s are comfortable and the AC worked well. They also give you a large bar of soap. It was good quality compared to what some chains...

“Get a top floor room because I had someone come home at 11 pm and thump around above me. No fault of the hotel. Just a rude guest. Other than that, my room was very quiet and nice. The back looked out into an undeveloped area with trees.”
