I was on the fence about getting a room here because of the mixed reviews, but was VERY glad I did. I was traveling with my mother and infant daughter and after reading some of the reviews about parking lot dark and shady area of town, I was nervous, but when I arrived, it was VERY WELL lit and it's just in an older part of town. I mean I wouldn't go walking down the road in the wee hours of morning, by myself, but its fine to spend the night and feel safe. The front desk woman was very nice and allowed me to check out the room before renting it for the night. The room was nicely updated and had all the amenities you need. I was very glad it had a fridge with freezer so I could re freeze the ice packs for the baby's cooler. The beds were comfortable and it was clean. They do offer a continental breakfast, but we arrived so late, that we slept through it. The same lady from check in was still working and she did go and turn the juice machine back on when I checked out and allowed me to grab some. All in all, this is a great place to grab a room. They do have a pool, but we didn't use it. Its a little on the small side, but it looked clean. I wouldn't listen to the negative reviews on here... It's well priced for what you get and shouldn't be looked over!!
