My sister and I stayed at the cozy rest for five days while attending the junior Olympics. We had a newly remodeled room. It was clean and safe. Easy access to shopping and transportation. Don't be put off by the outside appearance this is a diamond in the rough.

We arrived quite late with no reservation on state fair weekend, and they gave us a room for half what other similar motels were asking. The room had a flat... More
