I enjoyed my stay here but it's a very off layout. To get to breakfast or the gym, you need to go up to the 4th floor and take the skywalk and then down 2 floors. Kind of a pain when you like to have breakfast in your room. The fitness center was great- a real gym! Bonus! I could...

Excellent service and quality of room. My family really enjoyed the pool and having dinner at the Saturday night Buffet. I would recommend this motel for the convenience and quality of having a nice room, pool, and dinner just a short walk from the room.

Both checking in and checking out were pleasant experiences with friendly staff. The rooms were spacious. We had an accessible room and it was especially roomy for a wheelchair. My mother also appreciated the sliding door for the bathroom, the roll in shower, and night lights. Also included are refrigerators and microwaves. The breakfast is very nice and reminds me...

The property is laid out strangely. It is quite a walk to the lobby and the restaurants. The work out center is in a whole different building. Now this should not be a turn off. It is very neat and the buffet that we had on Saturday night was great and very reasonable. It is a quiet hotel. The staff...
