I understand that the hotel wants to shine its light on the building to attract travelers from the Interstate, but when the lights are shining into your room, it makes it difficult to sleep. For the installation of blackout curtains, I would have liked the hotel a lot more. The rooms were clean and well maintained, however, the breakfast was...

We stayed at this hotel 10/22/2016. Wonderful inside. palm trees painted on walls. Nice FREE breakfast. Had a machine to make pancakes (never saw one before). It was just a very nice evening. Only reason, I did not give it a "5" is because the hot tub did not look to be very clean. But overall, I would stay here...
