First off hotels fairly new and clean. Overall appearance was good. Check in went fine Just had to wait until after 3 pm to get in the room, which was fine. Pool water was cool but served it purpose. Elevator didn't work the morning we checked out ,Stairs were ok and clean. Breakfast was very good and offered 2 meats eggs and cinnamon rolls.

I stayed for 4 nights and everything just worked as it should.

Most IHG properties charge $1-$1.50 per machine and $1 max for soap, so bring your own!!! If that is the worst I can ... Read more

I'll start off by saying, the employees at this hotel take notice to detail. They make a point of wishing a "Good Day" and a Welcomed Return in the evenings. Ian, Tom, Jasmine, Kaitlin, Eliana and James are an out standing staff to this location. The hotel location is in a perfect location for a quiet stay, but very close to many great places to eat.

For the most part, everything was nice at this hotel. My only issue was with the fitness room. I'm a runner and the treadmill didn't work.

Otherwise we make a mental note to stay somewhere else in the future at locations that have functioning equipment.
