The Good
Guests were very happy with their stays at this hotel.

The rooms were clean and well appointed with modern furnishings and guests enjoyed very comfortable beds with quality bedding.

Front desk agents were friendly and accommodating and they seemed to be a highlight for many.

The location was convenient for accessing shopping, restaurants and highways.

Guests enjoyed the Bistro. They spoke of enjoyed sandwiches, breakfast and sitting in the garden patio with a beer.

Adding value were: Starbucks coffee served at the hotel, the indoor pool, reasonably-sized gym and ample free parking.

The Bad
Guests also left some negative feedback online.

A few guests had trouble locating the property due to the sign not being seen from the highway and one guest claimed the turn into the property was too sharp.

Some found the breakfast and dining on site expensive and the Bistro hours and offerings lacking. Guests sometimes felt the room price was too high and that the hotel should have offered a free breakfast.

Recent room complaints were: no in-room safes or microwaves, an improperly cleaned bathroom and Jacuzzi, sink was cracked and grout was missing from the floor of the shower.
