    Wonderful staff. My husband is a veteran with a service dog and they were outstanding at offering help. Wonderful place. Very nice. Clean and comfy.

    Hidden non-descript gem

    Loved this place and stayed multiple times. Exterior lends itself to an older unimpressive hotel, though the interior is completely updated. There are a few minor problems with some rooms given age of hotel (one room had problematic toilet, one had carpet squares not completely fixed, one room had lingering smoke smell). However, don't get the wrong impression. These minor issues aside, this hotel offers a comfortable stay with updated interior decor, free parking, and premium satellite tv, that I think make this place ‐ comparatively speaking - a great find for the price.

    Couldn’t sleep

    They put a family with kids right above us and they were jumping for hours. We couldn’t sleep. They should put people with kids on ground level

    Grab & Go

    We were very happy with how easy it was to get checked in. Room was very nice, clean and comfortable. Continental breakfast was a little different due to Covid. The Grab &Go was cheese omelet, pancakes, sausage with orange juice. Nice portions and tasted good. I would definitely recommend and we would stay there again.

    Smoke detector went off at 2am due to low battery. I tried inquiring with the manager but he would not return any calls.

    Would stay again

    Weather was not so nice. It was raining, but as to be expected in November. Check in was fast and easy. The room was clean and nice. The room had one king and a pull out couch bed if needed. Very comfortable stay, no complaints. Only stayed one night, good pricing for location.
