Don't do it! We were on our way to take our son to college and needed a quick 7 hour sleep spot. Typically I'm diligent about using TripAdvisor to research our stays. But since we were traveling and the pictures online looked ok, I tossed prudence aside and took a gamble. Did we ever come up short!!! Rooms were completely... More

This hotel should be closed due to lack of maintenance. After a long day of driving, I was too tired to go somewhere else, much to my regret. TV didn't work, hair dryer didn't work, ice machine didn't work. Tried to call the front desk & that didn't work either. The room had a horrible odor, like insecticide & air... More

Front desk staff was friendly, room was clean and comfortable. Price reasonable for a basic room. Continental breakfast was very minimal. Would recommend eating at the restaurant "Bob's Your Uncle" which is located next door (but it is not open for breakfast).

Was passing through - stayed for just a night. The staff was very friendly, room was basic but clean. It is a 5 minute drive from the center of town, which is close enough. Also is attached to a place that serves food and drinks, so at the end of the night there is no need to drive back into... More

When we arrived they didn't have a room available, even though we had already booked one, because there weren't any clean. There is no hot tub like it shows in the pictures. The beds were so hard and uncomfortable. The ceiling was leaking water all over in various places throughout the hotel. They had no towels for swimming and refused... More

They weren't welcoming to begin with. We've been here a day and they acted like we didn't need to be there. Our toilet was clogged and wasn't even going to fix it. The room is nasty. Free WiFi? Forget that! They said they would have it fixed by four p.m. this evening, we came back at 9:30 p.m. and they... More
