What Do Our Guests Think?

  • Have stayed in a many different hotels in the area while visiting family and finally found the one that I will stay at from now on. From front desk reception to maintenance - great people and very clean. Large pool area and hot tub. Will definitely be back soon.

    Stacey R.

  • Like a lot of people say, the staff at front desk are really nice and helpful. The hotel is clean and well organized. The rooms are clean and spacious. I had a good night sleep on the bed and pillows. The breakfast in the morning was good. Great overall experience here, and I would stay again.

    Mark D.

  • This was a truly amazing unexpected stop along our trip. Everything was on point, spacious immaculate room, friendly staff and hands down the softest mattress I have ever slept on. Seriously it was like cuddling with angels!

    Autumn K.

  • By far, one of the best places I have stayed in! Right off the freeway, located in a business district. Very nice amenities, gym, heated pool, spa, laundry facilities and they supply the tide pods, and a very nice lounge / restaurant in the lobby.
