I believe this possibly might have once been a microtel. Anyway the room, although somewhat cramped, was clean, comfortable and quiet. Everything updated and new. The front desk clerk was friendly and they had refreshments as soon as we walked in (coffee, tea and cookies). The wifi worked well and they have a good breakfast. I will be saving this location for future business trips. Well done :)

There is nothing fancy about this place but if you're just looking for a clean room to put your head down for a bit, this will work. On the down side: Rooms are very, very small (like NYC small). I'm not sure what the pictures on the web site are because my room looked nothing like them. I did not like that there was nowhere to sit other than the desk chair or the bed. The walls were pretty thin and there were odd clankings though the night (old plumbing? old HVAC?). My room was in the front of the building and a spotlight pointed directly into my room. The elevator was out of service, but it's only two stories so walking up a flight of stairs for a few days was no big deal. Housekeeping was...inconsistent. There's the typical "green" option where your linens and towels won't be changed if you're game. Fine by me, but they either changed my towels every day anyway, or just took the used ones and didn't replace them.

On the bright side, the room appeared to be recently refreshed and the bathroom was updated. The staff was very nice and the complimentary breakfast did have a good variety of healthy options like oatmeal and fresh fruit. It's located in the middle of a strip mall/chain restaurant area so not at all charming like the historic area, but safe and convenient to downtown and the highway. Take the time to drive the 10-15 minutes to downtown for meals; the number and variety of really great locally owned restaurants is impressive.

Overall, it gets a big "eh" but it wasn't terrible.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the back. The front rooms face a very busy road and you may have a spotlight beami...

Good place to stop for a night but be prepared for a very small room. We stayed here because we had our little pooch with us. We requested a king bed which we did get but the bed took up most of the room. There was not a chair to sit in and the bathroom was tiny.
The bed was comfy and the staff was nice. Breakfast was typical. The hotel is in the middle of a shopping mall/ strip. Restaurants are all over and it is not far from the town which is adorable b.

Room Tip: The elevator is being replaced so ask for a first floor room or be prepared to climb steps. Also, as...

First time here and I Will Not Stay at Any Other Hotel when staying in this City. I had a Late Check In and the Woman Greeted me with a Big Smile and Up Most Respect. I'm a Diamond with Both Choice and Best Western. I had to stay Here for Work and So Glad I Did. Marty Our Sales Contact was So Very Helpful. He was given the Wrong Floor Plan and before 15 minutes passed He and His Team had My Room Set Up PERFECT !!! Thank You Goes Out to The Entire Staff. Raymond A Cardillo

Room Tip: 1st Floor is where I Chose to Be
