I chose to stay here for 2 nights because it was pet friendly. The room appeared clean except for the mirror in the bathroom. The bed was not as comfy as I initially thought. I woke up with an aching back both mornings. Good thing about this place is that it has a nice size grass area to walk your...

This place is very nice, but the bed was terrible. I am pretty sure it was on wheels. But it is great for a simple stay. The kitchen was really nice though and had a nice restroom. I was staying for more than a night so it worked well.

Stayed at this hotel for six days. Room, bathroom and furnishings were very clean. Bed was quite comfortable. Didn't realize before checking in that dishes, pans, etc., for kitchenette had to be requested. Room cleaned once weekly unless additional request made. A bit spartan compared to Hilton and Marriott but comfortable, conveniently located, and reasonably priced. Will stay there again...

Stayed here for 4 days, as it was a pet friendly hotel. Was not very impressed with the services provided. Due to our short stay, housekeeping was NOT included(but can be had for an extra cost) and linens must be exchanged at the front desk. The 'continental breakfast' advertised, was in fact what they referred to as 'grab and go'-...

We stayed here twice in November and like our other stays this year we were very happy. The rooms were clean and we like having a kitchen. the dishes, pans, coffee cups, etc are available for the asking and it is nice to know they have been through the dishwasher, not just rinsed off and put in the cupboard.

Stayed at this hotel for 5 days with my son and husband... it was okay value for money.... however, one thing that wasn't advertised on Hotels.com where I booked it, is that it isn't a full service hotel. That means you don't have any housekeeping while you're there; if you want new towels, you can bring the used ones to...

Spent the weekend here with my boyfriend and we had a blast! The rooms are very clean and cute. It has a whole kitchen inside the room which was awesome for making food.

“The front of the hotel is best because there are trees there to shade it.”

“I was on the bottom floor... no noise from upstairs, hallway, or the parking lot. It was great.”
