dwe were shocked at how nice the place was especially for the cheap rate we paid for four days. the staff seemed to be very conscious of how the place looked inside and out. that was something we hadnt seen anywhere else. very friendly staff. would have preferred a nice hot breakfast but the continental did us fine. will de3finately stay there again.

"I forgot to say I needed an HA room. Front desk person attentive under pressure."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
Front desk could not accomodate me with an HA room but asked me to wait and see if a 1st fl room might be acceptable when and if one became available. It was. I got a nice, clean, well appointed room with a good bed and TV. Clean, simple and unpretentious. Nothing tacky. Junior carried my bag and helped me to my room. He was courteous and kind. Later I tried to call a pizza place near my home (I couldnt stay home because work was being done there). The pizza place would not deliver more than five miles away. So I had to rely on the man at the front desk to help me. He explained that I had to use an app and there was no longer any choice in the matter. He was very skillful in handling my call at the same time as many other demanding people in front of him. I can just imagine what it was like to have to deal with a crowd of people in front of him and also with me calling multiple times. I had not eaten all day, was frustrated trying to use the app because I was not up to date. Because there was no human contact, I wound up with three hamburgers instead of 1, no fries but gluten free chips. How well I remember Alvin Toffler and his futuristic book from the 70s, "FUTURE SHOCK".

"My Opinion"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
I wasn't expecting to find such a nice hotel! The people behind the front desk were so friendly. The general manager is a very good person, I had an issue which he handled immediately, he even helped me make a reservation at another hotel in another city. You will be happy you stay here too!
