The service at the...

My boyfriend and I went for a stay-cation at retro suites. It was amazing! The staff was very friendly, the decor in the hotel was great, and I loved that each room was different. It was hard to pick which room we wanted to stay in. We picked the first class room and it was great. Lots of airplane themed...

In addition, the entire staff was great. The young woman (Jamie) who checked us in was helpful and gave us a choice between the 2 available rooms. (We...

We traveled here last year for 1 night away from kids :). Each room was decorated in a different motif. I chose Sahara which had a little balcony and a kitchen. Hotel provided some water and popcorn which was nice. Room was really clean, bathroom was spotless but on the small side if that matters to you. We really enjoyed...
