We were really surprised that it's like being in your own kitchen with the appliances available & kitchen stuff. Very clean, bathroom is well supplied & I really appreciate the fact that the items used are durable & trusted brands like kleenex & cottonelle. My children did not have a forein feeling of not being in our own bed, they felt so home. It's super clean & the breakfast area too is so organized & clean.

Great location, hotel is dated on the inside. Checkin process took forever, with what seemed like a lot of paperwork the staff needed to do.
