    Loved how new the rooms were. Bed was so comfy and bathroom was clean and fully stocked. Breakfast surpassed our expectations.

  • 8.0.Very Good

    Good overall

    The hotel smells really strongly of chlorine and dampness when you go in, but overall it was a nice place. The room was big and the beds comfortable. We were at the end of a hallway and it was quiet, we slept well (despite the alarm ringing at 6 am on a Sunday morning, thanks to the previous guest who did not turn it off). Breakfast was good with a mix of cold and hot items, even though the pancake machine was broken. :(

    Good experience.

    Breakfast was good. The room was spacious and clean. Love the chaise in the room. The location was okay and right by the highway.

    Everything was fine but I booked the hotel because it had EV charging only to find out that they discontinued the service. Hope they reconsider, step backwards, lots of EV drivers out there and more coming and they look for hotels with charging to stay at.
