      Room was comfortable and the location was good. Internet was 95% OK. Need a weight room or exercise room.

      On the weekend some kids stayed and partied outside of there rooms. The noise was mildly annoying.

      For the price this is the best we have had for the last three years and not only, comparing with Horizon and Highland . The staff is very friendly and always in the morning there are several options for breakfast. The room was clean and receantly remmodeled. I recomended this for any family's with young children. Thanks
