“WOULD STAY AGAIN!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

This hotel was a very nice place to stay! There was enough room for my three little kids, my husband and I. It was very clean and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and more then helpful! I was not disappointed in my stay and would stay again.

Cheap, clean and comfortable, which was all we wanted. The breakfast isn't much, but staff was great.
