Guest Recommendations
Beautiful place to stay that is affordable and clean
"I was presently surprised. It was only rated as a 3 star hotel, but when I arrived this hotel is definately more than that. It was extremely clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was beautiful and quiet. The hotel is very convienent to everywhere as well. We booked this hotel at the last minute on the 3rd of July, expecting that we would only be able to get the bottom of the barrel for a room or hotel. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. It was a great place to stay."
