An above average hotel for this price range. Have an excellent breakfast that can be ordered from the menu then picked up to go due to COVID-19.

The whole property was clean, inside and out. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It was also very quiet. We stayed 5 nights and you could have something different every morning for breakfast, and all was good.

The room was outdated. We had to have air conditioner worked on. It did not cool very good. The room was noisy. Lots of kids making noise into the night. Breakfast was good. Staff friendly and helpful.

We appreciate the review and are sorry if the noise disturbed you as there was large kids baseball tournament going on during your visit. We are normally much quieter on the property than that. We hope you have a chance to visit again and see for yourself. Safe Travels
