Giving my first 10
This is the first time that I will ever give a hotel a 10. We had to park off site, but it was a short walk, and they paid for that parking, plus gave us a $10 bonus toward our stay. Everything was immaculate clean and up-to-date. The room was quiet and comfortable and full of amenities. Breakfast was plentiful, with many selections. Everyone at the front desk was super nice, and very professional. We are definitely going to be back again, and this time we're going to stay for longer. We had this great little kitchenette, that we never really got to use, except for making coffee. I'm just blown away by this place.
