Nice location but no bible in the room as requested. Front desk was able to come up with a small one but only upon request. I want the Gideon bible in the room. If you want to add other books, feel free.

This was a one night stay for two. The hotel is very well located right off the freeway, with easy on and off access and plenty of parking. Our room had no view to speak of but was clean and comfortable.

Due to the hotel's location being so close to a freeway it is very noisy in the rooms. The rooms are average. The beds were comfortable but I would bring your own pillow because the rooms are feather filled and sleep warm. Also the bar and breakfast are quite expensive for a family.

Incredibly peaceful place to stay as long as the neighbors around you are quiet and not throwing parties of some kind.

Incredibly peaceful place to stay as long as the neighbors around you are quiet and not throwing parties of some kind. There is the occasional door slamming from people staying next to you but that's usually only during the day, night time is pretty quiet, I would always suggest asking for a room on the top floor, so that you won't have to deal with possibly noisy guest above you, and also a room at the end of the hall, it's like being in your own world, very peaceful and relaxing. Staff in very attentive. be warned they can't seem to add extra nights to your stay without you first having to check out and then check back in, so if you're the type of person that likes extending your stay at a hotel be aware of that, they also can't seem to see discounts for rooms, that are on their own website for some reason, so also be aware of this if you just walking in to this hotel looking to book a room last minute. Always look on your phone for better pricing first. Read less

The staff was very friendly and answered every question we had. Plus they printed me off the directions to the event we were planning on going to. My phone wasn't working and it was a very nice thing they did for us. Wish we would have had more time to take advantage of all the extra amenities! Thanks for such a great experience!
