This hotels atmosphere was disturbing. I did not feel safe as it appeared people lived in this hotel. There were people sitting hanging out in the parking lot drinking and smoking. Not my idea of a nice family stay.

Don't miss an opportunity to come to this terrific hotel. Pleasant and helpful staff. I really enjoyed the breakfast, which was very fresh every day. Great location, close to restaurants and stores. McDonalds is right in the back. Very quiet and restful. Can't be beat for the price!!

Air conditioner doesn't work; after staff lady came up moved us laterally on same floor. Now no micro and fridge, which was paid for. Third room slightly better, but burns in comforter. To tired...
