“Wow -- 1.5 Stars? Said who??? GREAT value!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

OK, so this is no Hilton, Hyatt or Marriott. This hotel does, however, rate as good or better than many of the moderate chain hotels at a more gentle price. This hotel is clean and the furnishings appear to be brand new. The faucets shine and look like they've never been used at all. The tub, toilet and sink are immaculate.

1. No carpeting (hardwood floors do have a certain appeal though)
2. Linens (both bed and bath) are mismatched and have a few holes.
3. The way the beds are made is very awkward... They are short-sheeted (remember camp as a kid?) toward the foot of the bed. This results in the bedspread having to be completely removed from the bed to pull the sheet and blanket up.
