“We stayed here recently for two night on our way to Colorado. We were greeted by a very friendly staff member and check-in was fast and efficient. Our room was clean, the bed was very comfortable, and the decor was pleasing. Breakfast in the AM was varied and the breakfast area was kept clean. We also enjoyed the manager’s social hour in the evening. We will definitely be staying here again.”

“We stayed there while attended a volleyball tournament and had a wonderful experience. They greeted us by name, knew our first names during the visit. They went far above our expectations to make our visit a memorable experience. New, clean and well managed.”
