Good overall experience. Nice facility. My family had a good time. The king bed suite was wonderful. Staff members were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was not great - not much variety and food wasn’t fresh.
Great place too stay. Room was comfortable and clean. Nice hot breakfast very friendly staff. Dining options were a bit spread out but still convenient. Will definitely stay again the next time we come to town
