A very nice hotel for a very reasonable price. Stayed in a 1 room suite. The bed was very comfortable and heard no noise from the rest of the hotel. The kitchen area was well equipped though I only used the coffee pot. Breakfast was nicer than the usual waffle and cereal. Was enjoyed by all. Would definitely stay again... More
