3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

The room was very clean and recently painted. Parking was close to the room. The toilet flapper didn't seat correctly and it took lifting the lid off the tank and pushing down on it to get a fair seal. There was a small constant leak with accompanied sound.

There were no washclothes, necessitating using a hand towel for showering. The wash cloth bar in the shower was missing. Friendly, hard working people running the place, cleaning was going on in the office when we arrived, Christmas Eve...
