Older, but well kept place to stay. Nice size room which included microwave and fridge. Nice swimming pool, which I did not use. Friendly, helpful staff. Some issues with slow wifi. Short drive to downtown to Broadway street.

Check In time would be around 2pm. I know that might be quite late due to business picking up during Weekends or Tourist seasons (such as CMA festivals). It gives them time to prep reserved rooms. Checkout time is 11am the... More
