This hotel was great for a family trip. The room was spacious enough for the kids to play and the kitchen was perfect for dinner prep so there was no need to eat out.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
We stayed one evening, and were upgraded to a two-story room with 2 bedrooms. This is definitely a refurbished apartment building, but the space and comfort were exceptional. We enjoyed food from the Live Oak Cafe on property, and the patio area was perfect to enjoy the evening breeze. We loved it - will be back for sure, even when we don't have an early morning appointment at the SB Hospital.
