Good stay for the price
For the price, it was a good value. The breakfast was limited but at least it served the premade frozen eggs patty, and with cheese, bagels, danish, yogurt, cereals, oatmeal, toast, assorted juice and coffee/tea. The room was fairly good and clean, mattress fair. Everything was working. Only seen a roach outside the trashcan in the breakfast room.

Nice inn
This place got a high rating and is called hotel suite and not inn so I was expecting a lot. Overall the place is ok I was just expecting a lot more. The rooms are old and feel very motel style not hotel suite. The room had a weird smell and the mini fridge smelled really bad. The breakfast was ok, cereal milk coffee and pancake machine. The pool is in the middle of the complex and was very small. Again nothing here was bad but just not what we were expecting when we booked a stay at a hotel suite place. This really felt like an inn.

Very clean. And the room was a good size. The only downside was the breakfast they were out of a few items and the staff there wasn’t being attentive

Nice-ish hotel
Lovely room. Very clean. Someone did steal a magnetic sign off of my car when it was parked at the hotel overnight. Lot of rot on the bottom of the door jam in the bathroom and the toilet was VERY loose.

Room (accessible)was very clean and maintained. However, the barn door to bathroom needs finger grips or knobs as it was uncontrollable. Could use more lay-down space for luggage, etc. Bathroom needs shelving. Breakfast was not good. Two days did not have eggs or meats.
