5 out of 5
The property was nice, up to date decor, my room was great. Staff were polite and friendly. The lady working the breakfast area did an amazing job Multi tasking and ensuring that she kept the food area clean and stocked. She was friendly and pleasant. Great customer service on her part as she worked the busy area alone. I appreciated the hot breakfast and it was delicious. Located in a nice downtown area close to restaurants and there is a local park across the street with a basketball court, tennis court, and a play ground.

It is a new property with a convenient location. The choice of beautyrest mattress is on the soft side so be prepared if that makes your sleep more difficult.

Everything was great, except the continental breakfast. We waited thirty min for the food to be restocked, and the food that was out was very sub par.
