The best room great staff would recommend it to everyone the spar and pool spent a fair bit of time in both and the grounds are manicured and the friendly staff couldn't do enough for us to make our stay worth awhile

Well located, clean room, helpful staff but priced high for what you get. Best suited for an overnight when traveling rather than an extended stay. Restaurants and stores are close by and while on a major street noise not an issue. Most of town closes down at 6pm

The best part that we love is the bath room. Shower, bath and spa! It has washing machine and dryer which are a big bonus for...
