No water pressure in shower. No electrical outlets .Wallpaper pealing . It was old and rundown.We paid $129.00 for $50.00 room.This was a place just to crash but not to spend time and visit or vacation

Guy at check in very helpful, rooms are in real need of fixing up, burn in comforter in non smoking room. A little musty smelling and the ceiling looked like it was leaking at some point. Beds are very uncomfortable, and in need of replacing. Pool closed at 9pm, usually they stay open until 10 so that was disappointing Ice... More

I stayed at this hotel for one night and was very pleased with it. It was an excellent value for the price. I will stay there again for sure! Here's the whole low-down. The hallway smelled smokey, but our room was a non-smoking room and it did NOT smell of smoke. The room was clean, everything worked. The bed was... More

We have stayed here a number of times before, and had the opportunity to stay here again this past labour day weekend for one night. If you are over 50 they will offer you a seniors discount. Didn't even have to ask. Free continental breakfast comes with the room. All kinds of good things to eat including fresh fruit, coffee,... More

We were in a non smoking room and area, but the smell of smoke in the hallway was terrible. Bathroom was very clean... More

From the road this looks like an old run down motel... And it is. But I have to say, that for the price you pay there are some surprising pluses to staying here. First, the staff (all of them) were incredibly friendly and genuinely kind. We called the front desk to ask for a restaurant suggestion and we were directed... More
