I loved the room and the cleanliness of the hotel ! They follow the COVID-19 guidelines and the staff was always nice and helpful. I will definitely be booking this hotel again! Only downfall is the parking. Parking was off-site and with it being winter it was a bit annoying but overall it was great !
