    Everything was amazing and a lovely staff ❤️ We will definitely will go back there, but the water of the pool was very cold and was not great to be there I will totally recommend it to warm up the water at least from 6 pm until they close it as it’s open to the weather

    Used as a starting point for our roadtrip - perfect for what we needed. Quiet for initial rest upon arrival. Nice pool and common area. Parking too. Staff very friendly :) we didn't explore the area a ton, but others in our group did and had no complaints.

    Good 6.0
    Average hotel
    The staff were very helpful and pleasant. The hotel itself was clean but a little outdated. The room was clean but maybe a little smaller than average. Not much space in the bathroom or shower. The breakfast buffet was very basic and the scrambled eggs were a little runny for my taste. Overall this is an average to good hotel and I would recommend but I would have liked a few improvements.
