We Would Stay Again
Our experience was good. The facility was nice from the outside but the room could have used an update. This is a pet friendly hotel and we do not travel with pets. Our room didn't smell like an animal but there were stains on the carpet. The room was clean other than that. The mattress was very comfortable and the linens were clean. The check in/out process was quick and easy. We booked at the last minute and paid more than usual but that was our fault. We would stay here again overall.

6/10 Good

Just ok..
We booked with hotels.com and was told it could take up to 6 hours to be able to actually check in (never an experience I’ve had before using hotels.com to book) Contacted hotels.com and miraculously when they contacted the hotel she had the reservation and we could check in in 10-20 minutes. The rooms are super small. The beds are comfortable but it got hot even with the AC on. No Wi-Fi. Overall I don’t feel like this hotel is worth the price. It’s old, the tub and sink are stained, it’s small, and there’s nothing special other than being close to the tourist area. And there are no outside lights (or they weren’t on) on the back so it was super dark..

The hotel was updated, staff very friendly and helpful We met with friends on this trip - got a double room - very very small. There was not room for a table, so had to play cards on bed - very uncomfortable. Small bathroom. If only a couple or one person very nice, for a family in a double room that clearly was for a single, no room. Bathroom small as well

Beat up lodge-like room
