5 out of 5
Recently remodeled lobby and rooms (as of early 2020). On site restaurant with good weekend brunch. Great touches including alarm clocks with power outlets on the top of the clock to plug your devices into. Also huge screens in the single queen bed rooms.

I liked that the staff were very friendly and eager to help with any request. Rooms were clean, with perfect amount of space and light. Water pressure in shower could be better. Location is perfect, so I will definitely plan to stay here again.
