The room was by no means lavish but it was clean, comfortable and not as loud as I would have expected considering it's proximity to I-8. There is an IHOP just out the front door. The Hotel boasts an outdoor pool. The bed... More

The only good thing was that the room was clean. We stayed here on July 19, 2006. The first room we were given had leak in the bathroom coming through the light fixture from the upstairs room. The manager said he would clean it up and replace the light bulb. I demanded another room due to safety reasons. The next... More
