The one staff person checking us in was cold, condescending and took forever. The manager that came to assist her was wonderful and got us checked in quickly and respectfully. The room was adequate and clean. Breakfast was great!! Location was perfect for us!

Very clean and safe feeling. Very communicative staff about amenities and parking. Breakfast was fantastic and a shuttle service that will take you to the airport or anywhere within a mile. I would highly recommend!

It wasn't that we were unhappy with the hotel itself, but unhappy with our experience. Imagine laying in bed about to go to sleep when your nosey neighbors in the room adjoining yours decide to go on an adventure and walk directly into your room while your naked in bed. This actually happened to us last night and because of the incident we were unable to get to sleep. The staff didn't really seem concerned that this happened to us. We immediately called the front desk asking 11:30 PM and a security guard came knocking on our door shortly after but we were never told what happened with our nosey neighbors and the front desk at check out weren't aware of the security incident. This could have really been bad, what if we weren't in the room and the neighbors actually came into our room and went through our stuff/stole from us? I honestly can't believe this happened and if this is how this hotel handles adjoining rooms, I do not recommend. It could have been a lot worse than it was.
