I stayed a night when I was taking a two day class in the area. Room was clean and cozy. Friendly staff and I had a good experience. Cheapest price in the area. Close to town but quiet I would stay again.

When we called the hotel,the manager stated that the maintenance man will check us in. We got there and had to stand in the cold for him to let us into the office to check in, because he had not got to the office yet. The manager stated we had 2 choices....a 2 bedroom suite out back or a 2...

I had to rent this place for a couple weeks last year as i was in transition. There is noone on site, the fees were astronomical. I guess the racing season is good for them but i don't know how families afford it.

However, we were very disappointed when we left for the day and received a voice mail and upon our return to the room to be falsely accused of...

smells the humidity, spiders near the toilet, not so bad? They took other amounts of money on my card. And when I called to told them the problem, they said that nothing was taken on my card, and invented a funny story.

Quaint mom & pop type place. If you are tall be prepared as the ceilings are low. I'm only 5'3" and standing on my tiptoes I could reach the ceiling. Even lower in the shower. Brand new laminate wood floors and bedding. Everything else was old but clean. Nice having a fridge & microwave in the room. Towels are a...

I went up a week earlier than I had planned on a trip and needed a place to stay over that night. They put me up in the same unit that was reserved for me the next weekend. Went back that following weekend and it was a nice quaint small apartment like room and just so unique.
