The hotel is undergoing renovations. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The carpet was in need of replacement. The bathroom was new and the countertops and faucet new. Good water pressure in the shower. The breakfast room is large and a good assortment of food, hot and cold. The tables were clean and the coffee was hot.

I stay at this hotel once a week for work. The hotel is clean and the staff are nice. Very pleasant! Once I went to have breakfast late and the dining room was closed. The manager got nice breakfast for me anyway. Another time I left my jacket in the lobby and the staff kept it carefully for me.
