    Folks at desk were pleasant. Roomwas clean. Shuttle guys were awesome. Location was fairly easy to get to and walk around town. Didn't do restaurant or bar little out of my price range. But they were attractive.

    If you travel a lot and expect a lot out of your hotel during your stay, especially if you are planning to upgrade your room to a suite...or higher. Go somewhere else. This will not meet your expectations
