Great place for our needs as a stop over. There was a very nice man in reception, really helpful :) Large rooms, clean & tidy, good beds and pillows. AND there is a brilliant little restaurant just next door....so cheap and really yummy. The price for this hotel was CHEAP and included breakfast!!

Was there with friends during the weekend event of the Elvis Explosion. Very enjoyable time, meeting all of the "Tribute Artists". Anyway, their were 3 of us ladies sharing a very nice comfortable room. Very clean, quiet room. Staff were very friendly, nice, helpful too. We also enjoyed the Free Breakfast offered to Guests. Nothing big, but plenty of choices,... More

The service staff at the hotel was great to work with. We came in at 11pm and got checked into our room in record time. The room was so-so and the bed was really uncomfortable, you could feel every spring and major depression in the middle (rm 241) . Place needs major updating but overall good value for the buck.

This is a nice hotel for the money. The location is good, near downtown and not far off the highway. Staff is friendly and helpful. Room was just ok. Long walk through the hotel to get to my room. It does need updating, old furniture and no comfortable chairs in the room.

Thank you for taking time to share Thomas and I appreciate what you shared about the staff. I do agree that we have a great location. I also agree that we need to update the property. It's starting to look like those much needed updates are just around the corner. We are looking forward to it and hope to see... More
