We were looking for a place sorta last minute and this needed up to be just what we needed. Everyone was friendly and accommodating. The free breakfast was more than most places offer. Definitely a place I will return to, especially now knowing pets are welcome to join you!!

Check in was a little confusing with the app they have you download before you get there and then they give you key cards to get into your room. I stood at my door with my phone pointed at the lock for a good ten minutes before I gave up and realized they gave me a key card. I was a little put off when they charged me $10 to park my car. Elizabeth, the hostess at breakfast is wonderful! Very friendly and hospitable. I would definitely stay there again.

If you like cleanliness this isn’t the property for you. We got a pet friendly room just had some previous damage and missing drawers. The room was not clean not because it was a perfect friendly room. Lobby bathroom equally dirty.
