Booked this hotel based on Trip Advisor reviews and was not disappointed! New property with clean, comfortable rooms. Nice breakfast spread with large area for seating. Several staff members constantly replenished and cleaned, which you don't always see. Convenient location!

Clean rooms and bathrooms. quiet environment. The evening reception is lame. So is the breakfast for this type of accommodation. Free WiFi, free parking. I would stay here again if I ever returned to this part of the world.
