The two double beds are very small and good for only one person to sleep in. I would try to get a room with the king bed and pull-out sofa bed. The hotel... More

Bedding is stained, furniture is shabby and I haven't had a hot bath since I got here, water is cold at worse, warm at best. Staying in room 312. As for location, if you like driving and eating burgers, you might like it.

During my last, week-long stay in late January 2014, however, I began to experience multiple, itchy bites every night. About mid-week, I reported to the reception that I suspected bed bugs. A housekeeper responded,... More

The staff was super-friendly. The room was extremely comfortable and the thermostat worked perfectly. I was happy to be in a quiet hotel with great space for working for business. The lighting was bright where needed and the room was dark for the evening.
