From check in to check out at great property. The people make the property and they have the people to fulfill your needs. The food was not your average "hotel" food nor were the prices. My room was clean and all of the staff met my needs. Truly a great experience, but I'm use to that at this and other...

Not too far from the Naval base... served our purpose and had a pullout bed for the living room which made sleeping my mother in law easy along with my wife and 2 kids! Staff is friendly and will return again when we need to visit my brother inlaw!

They went out of their way to make sure we were taken care of.
