Three nights here. Does everything we would expect of a small hotel. Location is quite good and drive in from airport straightforward. Never had a parking problem, but rather like the breakfast arrangements, I'd not want to be staying with a convention crowd where everything...More

No restaurant on site but there is a pizza place next door. I do not think there are any suites or jacuzzi tubs. The balcony rooms do not have private balconies. Nice place but probably not for romantic getaways.
