Stayed here for 3 weeks and will be back soon for 2 months. I called them directly and got an even better deal off best advertised price. Very conveniently located with everything you need nearby. Bed was comfortable and room quiet. Kitchen included the basic implements and dinner ware. Hotel is being "spruced up", room was recently painted, outside painting... More

air conditioner was not working in the room, stains on the carpet and chairs, also, they charged us additional $25 for each pet, although, nothing about additional charges was on the reservation; they said they will not charge, but they did anyway; not a good experience

Is in a good location on the NE side of town, quiet hotel with very nice employees.Suite room is quite snug but very clean. One concern we had was the sheets felt like they had sand in them...hope it was sand..as we literally swept out the sheets late in the night.

Pool is ok it's not super warm in pool area in fact pretty cold only swam for 20 mins with kids before they were ready to go.

When I arrived on11/3 at this location to check in on a confirmed reservation made through Choice Hotels for a single room, 2 adults, I was told that only handicap accessable rooms were available.

This is a wonderful place to stay especially if you are staying for a few days. The kitchen facilities are great, the staff is courteous, and the breakfasts were more than we expected. To top it all off the price was great.
