We are really grateful for a very reasonably priced, very clean hotel with free parking and a very friendly attendant at the front desk. This small redo of an older property has been tastefully remodeled... More

Jennifer greeted me both when I checked in and when I checked out the next morning. The property has recently undergone a... More

My husband and I spent 5 nights at this hotel. We never had any issues, front desk help was friendly and helpful. The room is small but as the pictures show you. They were clean and bed was comfortable. I would stay there again.
