The service was incredible, the front desk staff was super sweet and helpful. The room was pretty tidy & it was a nice surprise to see a refrigerator. The landscaping was beautiful and very welcoming. I would recommend staying here!

Love the remodeled room. Exactly like in the pictures. Not crazy about the homeless hanging around the outside of the building.
