I believe from experience that you can find a better hotel for the same money. The hotel was clean and friendly and well kept. Overall a reasonable choice except for amenities and price of room is too high for number of amenities.

We love this place. You can tell that the owners went the extra mile to make it a pleasant experience. All the details down to the numbers on the door are thoughtfully decorated. Comfortable beds, rooms stocked with everything you would need including an iPod Dock. Great flat screens. Far better than any motel I have ever stayed in.

Very clean and quiet location. Easy to find. Too far away from downtown to walk but only about 5 min away by car. Parking was limited so we had to... More

When I first looked into the hotel, it seemed really small. However as I approached the check-in desk, the staff was fast to respond. So, check-in process was easy and fast. Although the queen room was very small, the bed was very clean. Another thing is that the rooms smelled really nice. They were also really generous to give us... More
