We lucked out that a room was still available when we arrived late on a Wednesday evening without a reservation. Check in with Eris, the spunkjy 90-year old was fun. The room was clean, comfortable and very quiet. It was an excellent value. In checking reviews I didnt notice if breakfast was listed, but there was free coffee and small... More

We arrived and the woman who checked us in let me know immediately about the errors I had made when I reserved the room online. She then gave me the incorrect room number so that I was trying to open the door of another occupant who proclaimed that he was there! Our refrigerator was not cooling so we contacted the... More

The most comfortable bed I have ever slept on! Staff is friendly and courteous. Two restaurants across the parking lot for your dinner or breakfast choice. Coffee and danish in the lobby in the morning. $60 room was worth the money!

It was cheap and we had been driving over 10 hours. It was clean and it was your basic set up. The beds are full size they are not queens. We have a queen at home that was just my only complaint. We had a great night sleep and are thankful to find it. Bathroom is pretty small reminded me... More

For this hotel, you're not getting any more than what you paid for. When I booked, it said it had an outdoor pool, but I guess it was taken out, because now there's an open area that it like a courtyard. The rooms were okay sized. The toilet and shower are separate from the sink and counter, and the toilet... More

The rooms are great, clean and just as expected. The "breakfast" sucks but the rooms have a fridge so no worries there; although, in room coffee would be nice. They are pet friendly which is the reason I stayed but they have no grass area to walk your dog and the dirt, weed, sticker patch out back is super sketchy... More

Clean, friendly, pet friendly, HBO, WIFI and organic soaps and shampoo. I stayed in room 215. Coffee and pastry go till 11:00 am... unheard of! Only thing that kept it from getting a 5 was a little road noise but I'm a light sleeper. Would and will definitely stay again!

From the friendly lady at the desk to the large, immaculate, well-maintained room, a welcome surprise after a hard night on the road. Also pet friendly with a very reasonable fee, and the room was very reasonably priced. Only thing I missed was a coffee maker in the room, much more important to me than the fridge and microwave the... More

This is a solid 2-star hotel with amenities as you'd expect. Our room was clean, spacious, and quiet. The wifi was strong. Great water pressure in the shower. I'd stay here again.
