    Very clean and quiet. Beds were comfy. Loved the bathroom and shower

    Couldn't find a spot to park due to the restaurant patrons. They took everyone's room spots...aggravating

    Comfortable beds

    Problematic shower controls; hotel staff challenged to diagnose plumbing failures and provide replacement room in timely and customer-service-oriented fashion

    Superb

    The breakfast had good choices and the area was very well kept.

    Very weird to have a pool in the middle of a parking lot. Maybe invest in a garden along side of the pool so you are not looking at the trucks always parked there.

    Maybe need to add towels poolside or extra in room

    Comfortable bed, nice water pressure in the shower, friendly, helpful staff at the desk, varied and delicious breakfast options, cleanliness, adequare parking.

    Our keys did not work well at all to open our room door. We had to push the card down and up MULTIPLE times EVERY TIME we came back to the hotel to get in by pushing on the door with all our weight then entering the room like Cramer when it finally opened! Annoying when our hands were full and we just wanted in! Of course, we could've turned them in at the desk and asked for new keys, but we didn't.

    The bed felt good. The bathroom was good.

    The breakfast needs to be expanded. Cold hard boiled eggs are no treat. Hot scrambled eggs with a meat would be great. USA Today would be good to have for your guests to read.

    Quiet, easy access, clean.

    Arrived for breakfast at 0830. No pancake batter available and none was being prepared. We elected to go elsewhere for our breakfast.

    Fabulous

    The staff was extremely friendly, and the continental breakfast wasn't bad. They did a good job making the beds and keeping up with fresh towels and did so with no disturbance to us.

    There was black mold on the bathroom windows, the A/C smelled like mildew and triggered my husband's asthma, and the toilet had to be flushed sometimes two or three times for everything to go down all the way.

    Rooms were exceptionally clean and nicely updated. Beds were comfortable.

    We liked everything about the property although exterior, while freshly painted, was a bit dated in style.

    Clean, lots of sleep pillows and a comfortable bed...Cost was good for the room.

    Would like to see a warm breakfast as well as the continental breakfast. Almost every hotel today has this to offer.

    A little dated in style but overall good for the money

    The bed was very comfortable. Though we were on a busy street, it was quiet in the room at night. It was convenient to restaurants and other options.

    Our friends had some troubles with the key card not unlocking to door to the room.

    Too pricey for the quality. Advertised as in high demand. That could not be true. It was like a cheap motel.
