This hotel certainly isn't going to win any awards, but it was fine for a few nights with the kids. The staff was friendly, and our room was clean. That's all I was really looking for so I guess I was easy to please. The rooms are very small so not meant for a lot of people The place has... More

Tired and worn. Had to go to desk to get hangers. Only one in our room. Breakfast okay. No locL visitor info or brochure rack available. But a quick hop to expressway to get anywhere in the area.

Booked hotel on line and felt it was desperately in need of updating. The continental breakfast was cheep and plain. Staff was very accommodating. Would I go back to his hotel, probably not.

Found myself abruptly needing a room late on a Saturday night. Middle aged man at the front desk was very pleasant and helpful offering me a late checkout as it was nearly 3:00 AM when I checked in. Room itself left a lot to be desired considering the $87 rate. Water pressure was weak and the bedside lamp and clock... More
