This hotel and the staff couldn't have been more perfect. I always expect a very clean and comfortable room and this did not disappoint. The room was clean, the beds comfortable and the space larger than expected with a small kitchenette and couch. The breakfast was better than average for your typical complimentary breakfast with offerings of some healthy options: greek yogurt, hard boiled eggs, veggie sausage, egg white and veggie omelettes along with the typical items.
What put this over the top for us was the staff - especially Aida and Bob who were extremely kind and helpful. We were in town for several days for a family funeral and we received an EXCELLENT bereavement rate - even over a holiday long weekend. (just about half of the advertised internet rate). There was a room available to gather with family should we need it, they offered us a " goody bag" because the pool was being renovated (that didn't matter to us), offered us waters after our long drive. Cookies and ice water dispensers are available in the lobby. Personal service and extreme kindness. We highly recommend this hotel which is conveniently located off route 80 and we will certainly stay her again when we are in the area.

A broken down vehicle brought us here, so it is fair to say that we weren't in the same mind set as when on vacation. First off, this hotel has easy access from I80. The rooms are clean, well maintained, and everyone we came in contact with was accommodating and genuinely friendly.
What put this location over the top was Tatyanna (manager), Aida, Victoria, Steve and Seth. We stayed three days (so far) while trying to find someone to repair our vehicle. Manager Tatyana, with the assistance of Aida and Victoria, eagerly presented ways to help ease our stressful situation. They found room promotions we were entitled to. They searched and printed repair shops in the area, and they offered basic toiletries since we hadn't planned on an overnight trip. Steve (the maintenance person) not only loaned us a wrench and a few other tools, he assisted my husband as my husband attempted to repair the truck, and then offered information about the places nearby that could possibly help. Unfortunately on a Saturday night, there isn't much that could be done. Nor on Sundays. With the daylight savings time change, I lost track of time for breakfast, but Seth generously arranged it so that I could have breakfast anyway while he cleaned and closed down.
Now, it's Monday and the truck is with the dealer. We're waiting and hoping it will be fixed today. As I titled this review "It doesn't get better than this", it's true. We were treated as though we were part of the 'family'. Everyone went way beyond what would be expected! I'd like to think that WE were special, but I watched how they treated other guests, and it was the same. People were greeted when they came in, and wished well as they left. It was a positive, warm environment all around and honestly, we don't always see that...right?
I will make it a point to stay here in the future when in the area. I will also recommend it highly to people I know.
Thank you guys! Thank you for your hospitality, your smiles and most of all, your genuine kindness.
