Cribs, rollaway beds and connecting rooms are all available upon request.

I stayed here for 3 nights in October 2019. Check-in was easy and straight forward. Lobby looks nice and updated. Restaurant/bar area looked good even though I didn't use it. Place has a small outdoor pool. Rooms were fine and the queen bed was comfortable. Bathrooms were nice. Overall, I had a good stay. My biggest complaint would be that rooms on the interstate side are not adequately insulated from the road noise. You could hear trucks, cars, and motorcycles on the interstate at all times which made it difficult to sleep at night and would wake you up in the morning. If there was something I would change about the stay, it would asking for a room on the opposite side.
Great Staff, good central location and nice quality property at a good price. Hotel located in a nice suburban area. Hotel in excellent condition. Seemed like we were 15 minutes from everything (ie very central).
