We really loved our stay here! It was clean and quiet! And we got a nice big room for all of us. The breakfast buffet was easy for my kids and yummy! And the staff is so sweet and helpful. We will definitely be back.

The Hotel is a little aged but clean and the stuff is very friendly and helpful. Located directly on the freeway makes the location a little noisy. The beds are comfortable. The price value relation for my stay was ok.
