rooms are alright. We've been in nicer for less money though. The room was quite to the outside as the building is way off the road, but the walls to the bathroom and "jet" sounding fan are paper thin. This is OK if you need something for a few hours like we did at 1:30am, but I wouldn't book a... More

The office is in a building on the highway, but the building with the rooms is away from the highway so it is quite quiet. The décor was typically Econo Lodge (dingy rugs), but the sleep and shower quality were excellent. The free internet worked well, and we were pleased that the TV offerings included MS NBC. The owner/manager was... More

Another hotel that really went up in price since last year. Stay here because it is close to everything and the pool is real nice, very clean. Have a nice seating area outside where you can dry off after swimming or just sit and relax. Room is quite small and breakfast was average. Not worth the price.

We have stayed here before and most of the time it is OK. Old and out dated hotel but OK place to stay. However if you need any extras like pillows ask before everyone one leaves. Called to get extra pillows around 3pm and was told maintenance would bring them but was on break and we were going out soon.... More
