I am pretty easy to please. I don't usually complain about much as I'm very laid back. However, this has been a super disappointing visit. First and number one on the list of gripes is the wifi DOES NOT work consistently. I just spent 45 minutes trying to connect to TripAdvisor but couldn't because the wifi is not working for... More

Room was very clean, mattresses were encased in zipped waterproof covers. Staff was very helpful. We were traveling by car, this was our halfway point. After a long travel day it was very nice to come to a clean air conditioned room, have fresh cookies in the lobby and a nice resturant next the the hotel.

The bedding in our room was dirty and stained and the... More

The breakfast had scrambled and boiled eggs, yogurt, fresh fruit, oatmeal, and peanut butter. Healthy eating was easy with the choices offered. Very friendly staff and comfortable bed. The bathroom was in need of an update. Tile grout was coming loose and the sink was cracking.
