    5/5 Excellent

    When I arrived, I was greeted by friendly staff. They offered to help bring my things into my room and were very kind in explaining everything they had to offer. The room was really nice and had a microwave and fridge and coffee pot. They included coffee, makeup remover, soap and shampoo as well. I was always greeted when I went passed the staff and they were more than happy to answer any questions I had. Definitely recommend staying here.

    4/5 Good

    Room was decent size and easy to get into, just felt really dry and the ac unit barely cooled the room down even with the setting on the coldest and blowing hard all night.

    The bar attached to the hotel had tremendous scenery and the service was fantastic. We did not eat but a group next to us said the food is amazing. We will definitely be back!
