This hotel should be rated a lot higher. Excellent facility. Very friendly staff. Comfortable bed and pillows. Café offering breakfast is very good. Having a glass a wine at the bar was also a nice experience. Will stay here again.

The bartender. The check in guy. The check out gal. The servers. Everyone was professional and courteous. We were a large group staying overnight on a family trip to six flags. My junior suite was clean and large. No complaints from other group members. Breakfast was tasty. Dinner was reasonable. Towels soft. Water hot. Quiet. Definitely would stay here again.

The staff was extremely helpful and understanding with the large amount of family and friends that were there for the funeral. With such short notice they were able to make accommodations for everyone.
