Both room were worse than the first one. I also noticed, No water was in the pool. I would not allow my dog... More

I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The staff are very friendly. The room is spacious and clean. I highly recommend this hotel. Will definitely return. The newspaper with breakfast was an addition to learning about the local economy.

the room was in pretty good shape for an old property. The room had been painted recently and was clean. We were glad that it was on outskirts of town. We were passing through on a trip to a school. Even tho it was to cool to swim the pool looked nice.

It worked. The room was OK but the place is quite run down. Breakfast was good. I never eat biscuits and gravy but did there as the lovely woman who served the breakfast had made it herself. Friendly staff.

Horrible experience - from check in to check out. When I checked in late at night, the clerk had music blasting and would sing along the entire time. When he tried to offer me a smoking room when I requested non smoking, I asked what my penalty would be if I cancelled and went elsewhere. He proceeded to tell me... More

This is room 250! The curtains, floors, and walls were dirty! The air conditioner units upstairs are outdated! They offer cheap prices because the upstairs rooms don't have refrigerators nor microwaves! The customer service is also horrible! This was the worse hotel experience ever!

In its day this was obviously a nice modern facility, (A Holiday Inn for 40 years and since has been operated independently for the past 12 years according to one of the staff) Requested a non -smoking room which was fair though the stale room smell indicated otherwise?
