    This place was perfect for our needs, just a quick stop over. They were very friendly, the bathrooms were small but adequate. The beds were comfy, everything was neat and clean. The popcorn was a perfect touch.

    Thank you for "popping in with us", as our popcorn sticker says. We just had the new beds brought in last week, so it good to hear that they are "comfy". We hope you will come back and stay with us again!
