We enjoyed our stay I would definitely stay again the free breakfast was good. The rooms were clean and plenty of room beds were just right. Only problem was the wifi was slow and would lose it often but than then it was a great stay!

Very nice location, I traveled with my 2 teenage daughters and I felt safe there. Nice employees and pretty decent breakfast options. Clean fitness area and clean indoor pool. Nice location for eating and close to outlet malls.

We could hear the highway traffic all night and the people in the room next to us sounded like they were in our room. I...

Personal items were stolen from our room while we were out shopping. When this information was shared with the manager, he explained the hotel is not liable for missing items in guest rooms. The items missing valued $100. Each night's stay was $169. He would not make any adjustment to our bill to compensate for the stolen items.
