“Great one-night stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2013

Overnight stay in a two-queen room. It was CLEAN, no funky smells. Big room, big bathroom. Not luxurious, but just the type of place to stay in for a short visit. I thought the regular prices was a little outrageous (I ended up with a discount from work, but even with that, it was a little more than I wanted to pay), but check the hotels in the area...it's about on par with the competition. Any cheaper, and your staying at a "roach motel". The staff were very friendly. All in all, I'd definitely stay there again. Again, this is not luxurious, but clean and comfortable.

The fountain/water fall that can be seen thru the elevator needs to be kept free of debris for ecstatic appearance.

Our sty was the worst stay at a hotel ever. No AC, outlets with timers, shower head had my ears ringing. I would not recommend anybody to stay there. People at the front desk was super nice. That was the only good part.
