The stay was only one night without any issues. The hotel wa clean and service was good. The pool closed at 10 PM. Would be better if it stayed open unil12PM.

Great hotel for the price
I booked a room with a kingsize bed - it was so spacious and inviting. I loved the lay out. It had a long desk that partitioned the room. There was a pull-out queen sofa bed as well so the room easily could handle a family of 4. It had a very good breakfast the next day - plenty of fruit and hot dishes along with cereal and yogurt. The exercise room was one of the best - it had 3 treadmills, 2 ellipticals and a bicycle along with free weights and machine. It had a yoga mat. Did not go in the pool but it was there. Very easy to get to, right off the main highway. Would recommend it again
