I will visit there again

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Everything was just perfect. Great staff, excelled in breakfast, felt safe, room comfortable. Not a new hotel but beautiful. Nice front area to sit. I did not go to the restaurant. Quick hot water & I could control the temp in the room.

Amazing breakfast

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

I came to the hotel for work in town and had to stay a few extra days. I felt between the amenities, breakfast and the restaurant, It was a great experience overall! The best thing I can attest to was be sure to get a fresh omelet from the breakfast area!! Great staff.
