    The staff here is super friendly and always smiling. They are quick to address any concern should you have one. Manager takes frequent walks around property and he's easily accessible. Housekeeping is prompt, and does a great job. Location is within walking distance to grocery, restaurants, shopping, etc. Easy to find right on the main road. Competitive prices with a WORKING FULL KITCHEN so you can cook for your family members! :) We have stayed twice and would absolutely stay again and again.

    You walked in the office, no greeting at all & just ask for my ID. Then slide my credit card then told me my room number. There a kitchen, little dining table with big refrigerator, no utensils, you have to go to the office & borrow utensils & pay extra for cleaning fee. The driveway is only one way out that once you get out it’s so much traffic on the street that is hard to make your turns.
