Good location, clean, no frills hotel. Still offering smoking rooms, which is a rare convenience. Plenty of parking. Strong wifi signal, for free. Starbucks and some more than decent restaurants within walking distance. Good value.

Excellent location. Approximately 5 miles from the Downtown where the Greyhound bus & train terminals exist. City Bus stops are within walking distance. Spacious well furnished A.C rooms. Food & bar outlets nearby. Greatest of all the front desk staff consisting of Mr. Mayur Patel and Mr. Alex are enthusiastic and extremely helpful. I enjoyed my stay of 5 days
