The hotel and its staff were excellent. I was touched by the support of our military member's family. The sign placed on my hotel door congratulating my son on his graduation from Navy Basic Training was heart warming. I am a big fan of this hotel.

It was cozy. But kitchen should be updated. Bathroom was separated from sink. Which I did not like. If a bathroom is a bathroom every thing should be in the same area. Because when someone goes out of the bathroom to the sink. It is very unsanitary. The handle will have germs on it.
