    Good, but could improve
    Everything was excellent except some customer service. We went down for breakfast at 920 (they close at 10). There was no coffee, no eggs, no sausage (I'm assuming that's what was in there) left and no one refilled anything. As soon as 10 hit they cleaned everything up, including napkins even though we were still finishing eating... With kids

    Very Good8.0
    Nice hotel
    Nice comfortable hotel. Very quiet. We didn’t have art hallway noise or neighbors. The room was spacious (2 queen beds, couch, chair, kitchen). I was surprised to find 2 tv’s, which were nice to have as our family enjoyed different shows while we were relaxing. Breakfast wasn’t anything special. We were there 2 nights, and would have liked more hot items or at least cooked eggs both days. Coffee was good and there was a great selection of yogurt and items to toast.

    This hotel is very nice. Our room was absolutely huge and had a small kitchenette with it. We appreciate the spacious room! The breakfast was good and plentiful. It was very pet friendly!
