    Convenient location right off the highway and next to restaurants and a gas station. You could hear other people's conversation in the parking lot. We did not care for the breakfast and went to a nearby restaurant.

    The cost/amenities ratio was outstanding. The place was clean and comfortable. Cold air and a hot shower. Refrigerator in the room and a comfortable bed. All for under $100
