The rooms were very nice, clean and spacious.

It was nice to have a hotel room (suite) that could accommodate our family size. The rooms were very nice and when we visit family in that area, we continue to come stay at this same hotel. The price was reasonable for the suite we needed.

Nice hotel bad wifi.

The hotel was very comfortable and plenty of amenities. The only downside is the wifi. I was unable to connect to wifi because our room was out of range. Our room was on the 4th floor.
