Overall great hotel!

The hotel was clean, roomy, comfortable, and all around nice. We enjoyed our stay and would have no problem staying again. It was a great location to all the downtown attractions. The rooms were very clean and neat. They had plenty of room and we got a room with a great view! Highly recommend going with a room with a view!

So so..

Our room was okay but refrigerator was not working and a water bottle was consumed by someone else and left behind. Toothpaste was not displayed so make sure you get it from front desk. Location of the hotel is good and I enjoyed the indoor pool.
