Felt like coming home at the end of the day. From check in with Josna Bien-Aime to check out my stay was wonderful. Josna and all the staff were courteous and friendly, always smiling as she answered my numerous questions. The room was comfortable, clean and reasonably quiet for the location. Plenty of hot water. I felt very safe at the hotel and walking the surrounding area. Complimentary tea and coffee and the limited pay bar in the lobby was nice. The courtyard with a fire pit was a nice place to enjoy a beverage and meet other guests. |

I felt like I was coming home at the end of the day! The staff was extremely courteous and welcoming, a special shout out to Josna Bien-Aime, who always had a smile on her face as she answered my numerous questions. My room was extremely clean and quiet. Complimentary coffee and tea along with a limited pay bar service was nice. The courtyard with an evening fire pit was a wonderful place to relax with a beverage.
