Nice quiet stay, close to town, staff was very friendly and room was nice. Breakfast serving was a little different but had an overall great experience. There are 2 hotels together and they have 2 pools, one indoor and outdoor and you can use either, which was a nice option.

We stayed for 2 nights, since we arrived the owner was so friendly and he gaves us tips and what to do. The room was totally renewed (carpets, bathroom, paint) in our opinion should rated higher. For sure we will come back!!! Also we brought our small pet and the extra cost was ok.

This place is a budget friendly beautiful clean hotel. The owner of the property is very friendly and full of useful information. The bathroom had no dust, no mold, no damage and would pass the white glove check. The tiles in the bathroom looked new as did the sink and counter. The rooms come with a microwave and fridge and...

I stayed here just for a place to sleep. I needed a cheap place so I could make the trip affordable. The price was perfect. I'm pretty sure that I was only one of about 5 rooms booked there but they stuck a family with little kids in the room next to me the first night and the walls are... More

Room was ok--not overly clean but tolerable. the 2nd room couldn't get the a/c into it so we had to ask for a fan. Would have been nice to open the windows but since they had no screens and we were on the 2nd floor, decided that was no good. Needs quite a bit of upkeep done but hopefully it... More

We stayed at this hotel on accident..the hotel we originally booked did not have a late check in and was closed when we got to town. This place was open, friendly, and had a room for us after 1 in the morning. As we got in so late we didn't take advantage of the pool or any other amenities, but... More

We ended up arriving at our destination early and could not get the extra night next door. This hotel is under new management and was a pleasant surprise, the rate was great, staff was very friendly, room was clean and it had a nice pool area. One suggestion, book rooms directly, it is much less expensive, the hotel gets more... More
