I recently booked the wrong dates by accident thru Travelocity, and the awesome manager Mike allowed me to change it to the correct date without charging me the fee. That counts a lot for someone like me who is on a very fixed income. Thanks it's that kind of thing that makes me want to come back again.

Fellow travelers; I had a change in plans and needed the hotel to make an adjustment to my reservation. A hotel employee named "Cokie" was extremely patient with me. Her kindness and professionalism turned a very bad situation into a good one. I am very grateful to this hotel, and I recommend them to any traveler who wants good customer service.
