Very Clean with friendly staff
The rooms are very clean and staff is super friendly. I had to depart one day earlier than planned, and they actually called me and told me that they would get with and remove the final night so I would not be billed for it. Excellent Customer Service!!!

Pleasantly surprised, very clean and well kept. Greeted by a friendly smiling associate at the front desk. I was so tired from a long work day, I wish I would've asked her name. Very courteous and professional.

Good 6.0
Everything was good, only complaint (and a huge one at that) is that there are huge gaps between the floor and the room door, so it can be EXTREMELY noisy
