I stayed there for 2 days. The service was great. The room was clean. The employees were great, especially Sally Abbot and Scott Frazer. They also have a restaurant inside the hotel that serves good food.

Response from Susan O | Reviewed this property |
There is no free parking for this hotel. I parked on the street (for free) and had to move the car by 08:00. The hotel has valet parking only, under the hotel, for $20 each night.
