Very friendly service and a comfortable room. We had to leave too early to get breakfast but there was decent coffee in the room. We would stay here again!!!

The room was very clean & comfortable. The property is in a quiet location with good freeway access. The parking lot seemed secure. The only thing I would suggest is that the managers provide coffee makers in the rooms.
