    Great location, very clean and wonderful staff. Breakfast included was nice however the quality of food wasn't very good. The rooms were pretty small and the bed wasn't very comfortable. For the price we paid, we expected a bit better than we got.

    The staff was exceptional however the condition of the room was rough. The bed was worn out and had sinking lumps. Not comfortable for sleep.

    Excellent hotel!!

    This is our second time staying here. We love the location and having the breakfast included is amazing. Full breakfast with eggs, sausage, bacon, beans, toast, muffins, croissants, on top of cereals, fruit, yogurt, juice, coffees, teas etc. A great start to a busy day. Staff is friendly and very helpful. Definitely will stay here again.
