It was a good stay except for a couple of things. (1) little kid throw rocks at cars. (2) loud talking on cell phone around 3am outside the hallway. Other than all that Management was very nice. Comfortable bed and good HOT shower.

Will never stay there again! Not even for free! The clerk asked me if my I.D was fake and also mentioned how people try to use mexican ID's to book a room! How is that my business?! I'm mexican-american and he's comment about my I.D being fake was completely out of line!

I stayed here for a 5 day business trip and I was pleased with my experience. The breakfast was waffles, cereal, toast, mini muffins/pastries, oatmeal and juice. The room was small and the bathroom was the smallest it could be and still allow the door to open inwards (that was my only negative remark towards the room). The bed was... More

It is a good deal for the price. I had requested a king bed, but got a queen. It worked because I was by myself on this trip. Very clean, good location. Friendly staff. With a little TLC, It would be very special. I would deffinately stay here again.
