“It works”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

This is an older hotel so it's not new and fancy. If you just need a place to sleep for the night as I did between gambling this works. The pool was nice since it goes from 4 ft. to 6 ft. And the front desk man was so nice, always smiling, and respectful. I would stay here again if need be.

The room was clean and cool. Exactly what we were looking for on our road trip. The location isn't central for food and other amenities but we were able to drive to find dinner. The staff were friendly and helpful.
