We attended a wedding and this was our first time staying here. Hotel staff was very friendly, clean rooms and breakfast was delicious. I wish the price per night was lower for the small size room but besides that overall good stay.

Stay here and you will know why I entitled the rating the way that I did. I am only writing more because Tripadvisor is making me. Every part of the stay was great. From leaving my Lyft to departing in my Lyft.

The Sam does not have a shuttle to the airport. They typically recommend Uber as the least expensive way.
