I absolutely love this hotel and their breakfast is so good. Rooms are absolutely phenomenal and I loved the Décor. Managers Hannan and Brooke was very friendly and nice. When you make reservations ask for their names and they will absolutely help you out. I would choose this hotel for a business, family or just family gateway.

Excellent service and location for our family's gathering for a meal after a memorial service. The manager arranged all the details and catering for us on short notice and we were very pleased. Would recommend this venue for gatherings in the 50-75 people range.
