It was actually one of the nicest hotels I have stayed in. When we first walked in the lobby I was impressed then we got to our room the door opened and it was so fresh and crisp and clean looking it was very nice very comfortable very clean I would absolutely stay there again and I will truly recommend to all family and friends and if they can find one thing wrong with it I would even offer to pay their room the breakfast the next morning was outstanding very nice staff in there making sure we had whatever we needed

First of all, the hotel is beautifully decorated, modern yet comfortable. But what really set it apart from others in that price range was the personal welcome. Max was amazing, exceeding all expectations of hospitality. We have stayed at many very nice hotels. But none have ever come close to the level of hospitality offered here by Max and all the other employees. Would highly recommend!
