Location was convenient and easy to access. Staff was very helpful, friendly and efficient. Room was a good value for the price paid. Room was clean. Breakfast was typical for this tier hotel. Bathroom was really small but functional. I would stay here again next time I am in the area.

We stayed here on Christmas, on our way to Grandma's. The hotel was clean and nicely decorated for the holidays. The lobby and breakfast areas were spacious and well maintained. There was hot and cold breakfast foods. The room was clean with comfy beds; the pool and hot tub were nice too. We;ll stay here again!

The good: big rooms, pretty comfortable beds, recently refreshed decor.
The no-so-good: housekeeping was very lazy and after three days my skin began to crawl. All of the fixtures and appliances are quite old. Looks like they just painted and bought new linens, but the sink was very worn and the fridge motor so loud - just reminded me of how much energy was being wasted to keep it going. Walls so thin you could hear normal conversations on both sides. And, finally, the location is depressing. We were calling this the 'motel ghetto'. A collection of 5 or 6 motels with no services nearby. A real bummer for a town that has so much to offer.

there was a noise every 15 minutes from a motor. I am not sure if it was the big black fridge or the heater. There was a baby screaming most the night. It was clean. The waffle maker totally did not work,
