Kelly was a wonderful host, who was always very helpful to give us information about the Stampede or even the transit system. We enjoyed the many conversations we had with Kelly during the evenings. We would stay here again!
Kelly and her husband were very nice and hospitable. They have told us lots of useful info on stampede. But we felt sorry to have left there at the first midnight. The room was a bit stuffy and my friend got allergies.
