We fully agree with user donfJ6050QL: "This turned out to be an excellent location. The hotel was clean and the rooms were very nice. What really set it apart for us was the staff. Regardless of which employee you ran in to, they stopped what they were doing, asked if they could help and wished us a nice day. They made it a 5 star experience."
