We stayed in the basic room and while it was on the small size it was comfortable and warm. Toaster, microwave and clean towels each day added to our pleasant experience. The service is exceptional and a very friendly and approachable owner / manager. The deluxe rooms I imagine would be quite nice and roomy.

When we booked this room (n.1) we knew it was a budget room... It was clean and the basis things were provided... Luckily we had our own heater as the only heating in the room was an old strip wall heater. We paid $88
