Very Good 8.0
My husband has been paralyzed for 6 years and we have stated in a ton of hotels, but this hotel was the best one we have stayed at that was wheelchair accessible! Lots of hotels are handicapped accessible, but not wheelchair. Large roomy rooms, roll in large bathroom, large roll under sink. Very wheelchair freindly!

Great hotel for quick stay
We just stopped by this hotel for one night during the long drive. Yet, it was a great experience. The building and room seems to be very new (or renovated recently) and room was very clean. Because of COVID-19, we did not have a chance to enjoy free breakfast and facilities such as a pool, but they offered to-go breakfast (bagel, yogurt, fruit cup, and granola bar). If we stop by this location again, we definitely will stay here again.
