I stayed here for a week back a couple months ago and was happy with my stay. Although I could hear some noise coming from the parking lot and people passing by the room, I found the room to be nice and clean. The price was reasonable compared to other hotels in the area and the hotel's location is fantastic....

This hotel is clean but it is noisy. The trash gets picked up around 6am and if you are close to the street you will definitely be woke up. And check your rates. Our bill didn't match up to our reservation email. They fixed it eventually, but be prepared to prove it!

This is my second time staying here at this hotel. Great, friendly staff, excellent breakfast and clean atmosphere. Even though it's on the expensive side which is already expected, once you stay, you'll understand why they price it the way they did. It's definitely worth the price! I will definitely come back here for business and also use them for...
