Charged fees for situations that did not apply. Partially reimbursed but not satisfied. Room was beautiful and breakfast was amazing, but not worth the very expensive fees that were unduly, and unfairly assessed.

Rooms are spacious, very clean, and best free restaurant breakfast. Clerks and waitresses were extremely polite and accommodating. Very happy with our stay. Near all the other restaurants and gas stations. Great value. It is top of the line for a 2-star hotel. Very pleased.
