All the Staff I met and dealt with were accommodating and pleasant from the time I checked in until the time I left. Rooms modern, bed comfortable. Microwave, refrigerator nice to have. Breakfast was great, Managers Reception at night a nice 2 hour chance to sit back, catch your breath, and have a few snacks. No complaints.

This hotel was fairly clean and in a convenient location. The walls and floors seemed thin. We could hear the guests in the room above us walking as the floors creaked. Ask for a room on the third floor. Can't do much about the thin walls. Our shower curtain wouldn't stay closed. It kept sliding down on both ends because... More

Loved everything about this hotel. Beds were comfortable and breakfast buffet was very well done. Great service and attitude from all staff. Only complaint was the price we paid seemed a bit on the high side.

Newly renovated property was clean, bright, comfortable & cheerful. Standard HIE set-up, decor and offerings. Friendly, professional, helpful, positive, and courteous staff headed by Potique who is obviously proud of her property and her co-workers. Only negative for us was it was only a 1 night stay. Highly recommend.
