Everything about the hotel is great. The staff is friendly, the grounds and public areas are clean, the rooms were well maintained, and breakfast was good. So why a 3 rating? I got two rooms for 2 nights and paid almost 150 dollars a room per night. Apparently the area economy allows the price gouging but I am not on... More

I stayed at this hotel for a week so that I could start my new job in town before I moved to our rent house. The hotel is nice and conveniently located close to most everything in town. The only problem I saw is that the hotel is almost in need of a remodel. The room I was in just... More

We followed our high school ball team down south to watch them play so we stayed in the same hotel. Very clean hotel and very polite employees especially since we had 2 buses of high school students staying. A bit expensive $169 with all taxes (king room) for a Friday night but worth it after traveling all day. Small 4... More
