The room was average. Sort of old. The breakfast was awesome. Prob the best thing about the experience. They had fresh inlets eggs and sausage as well as all sorts of other breakfast items such as yogurt hard boiled eggs cereal toast bagels and more. The parking was awful. I couldn't get our my spot. I had to back up and go forward a bunch of times. It's super cramped. The room was like a motel six room. The bedding was fine.

"Excellent"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
The staff at the front desk were very professional, especially Kathy she was real sweet. We forgot to say so at the desk but the toilet inside the tank is leaking pretty badly and wasting a lot of water somebody should maybe look at it. The king size bed was very comfortable and the bathroom towels smelled very fresh. We will tell friends about this hotel.
