Not the newest...not the neatest....BUT....overall not a bad value for the price. Staff was friendly and competent. Cont. breakfast was so-so. They could use some bulbs in their driveway signage since it was difficult to find the drive at night.

Clean rooms, pet friendly. The towels were thick and fluffy, which is unusual for a budget property! My major complaint was while the hotel is a non-smoking hotel, there was a significant odor of cigarette smoke on the second floor. Not old smoke, recent as though either the staff or an occupant had been smoking.

The staff was very nice, and everything was great. I was in for a convention and was looking for a hotel and these guys have a great price and really good service! If I ever I'm ever looking for a place to stay in the area again, I know where to stay!

I stayed during the march snow storm, and Sean... More

The desk clerks were very friendly and nice. It is very hard to find this hotel from the main road. There needs to be more lighted signs.
