The Good
This hotel impressed a lot of guests who gave it full marks in the reviews.

Guests liked the rooms. They were clean, spacious, quiet and well-appointed with really comfy beds.

The staff was welcoming. Guests told of the care and concern they showed and how they went out of their way to accommodate guests. Some thought they were highly trained and able to manage any situation.

The location was convenient. Recent guests put it well, "Close to airport, close to main expressways, and close to all needed services." and "The hotel is close to shopping and lots of good restaurants."

Pool hours were most accommodating and the pool was nice and warm.

The food was good. Guests often described the free breakfast as very good, with lots of rotating choices, filling, in a clean area, quickly replenished and with especially helpful staff. 

The hotel was considered excellent value.

Many were returning guests and many planned to return. One guest summarized it like this, "Love this hotel. Great location. Great staff. Great service."

The Bad
There was very little negativity in the reviews.

Once in a while a guest would mention that parking can get crowded after 5 pm due to the Pizza restaurant next door that shares the lot, but there were more reviewers who said that parking was ample. 

Some guests found the hotel somewhat noisy. They mentioned noise from traffic on roadside rooms and children in the hotel and at breakfast.

One guest claimed to have lost her bathing suit at the hotel and another guest said he burned his body on the slide which may not have had enough water for him. The manager responded sensitively to both reviewers and is daily checking the slide to ensure it is running properly.
