Recent guest reviews

The staff when I make my check in was very unfriendly. Breakfast was only half of the food variety they didn’t refill the containers And after closed the kitchen don’t left Complementary Coffee

I paid for a 2 queen bed, and when i het tjere they set me up in a 1 king bed and there was nothing that could be done

This location was very clean, smelled clean, looked clean. I didn't have any issues with the elevators as I had seen in other reviews. There are a lot of shops and restaurants near by to choose from and it is close to 35 but is far enough away to not see traffic! We had a room with 2 queen beds and a sofa bed and it was perfect for our family of 5 with older daughters who fight about which side of the bed they sleep on. They were all able to sleep comfortably with the extra sofa bed available. We will stay here again when in the area. Thanks!

Great hospitality and very clean. Why can't you make your surveys easier instead of requiring an entire novel of feedback?

Great place to stay, room large and comfortable. Good location.

Everything was great. Nothing I did not like. Would stay here again.

Super spacious with very comfortable bedding and a pleasant stay overall!

NO DISLIKES... IT WAS CLEAN AND VERY COMFY!! LOUNGE WAS ROOMYU.. BREALFAST WAS VERY GOOD. FOOD SLECTIONS GOOD.. STAFF VERY FRIENDLY..

The property is new, so everything is modern and lovely. The room was very clean, and the staff was super sweet!

Negative feedback- Walls in bathroom dirty and interior decoration could be improved. No wine opener in room. Housekeeper didn’t come back a second time around to clean the room Positive feedback- Staff is friendly and helpful, price of room was good and convenient location. Comfortable bed and very quiet. I liked the free breakfast and parking was very convenient.
