    AHHHHHMAZING!

    The hotel staff was exception, very hospitable and helpful throughout our stay. The facility is located within walking distance of the outlet mall, bass pro and great places to eat. I loved the setting and walkability. The hotel is beautiful and super clean! I will definitely be making this hotel my home away from home! My son and I enjoyed our mini vaca.

    Everything was fantastic, the staff was so helpful! I have a dietary restriction and they even went out of their way to make sure I had a breakfast that would be safe for me to eat!!!

    The hotel was great. My only complaint was that the hot tub wasn't working and the pool got really cold, which was the hole point of our stay, so the kids could swim.

  • 8.0.Very good

    My husband has been paralyzed for 6 years and we have stated in a ton of hotels, but this hotel was the best one we have stayed at that was wheelchair accessible! Lots of hotels are handicapped accessible, but not wheelchair. Large roomy rooms, roll in large bathroom, large roll under sink. Very wheelchair freindly!

    Great hotel for quick stay

    We just stopped by this hotel for one night during the long drive. Yet, it was a great experience. The building and room seems to be very new (or renovated recently) and room was very clean. Because of COVID-19, we did not have a chance to enjoy free breakfast and facilities such as a pool, but they offered to-go breakfast (bagel, yogurt, fruit cup, and granola bar). If we stop by this location again, we definitely will stay here again.
