Only laughable thing is that at 8:30 the next morning, we were greeted with empty coffee urns and a sign that asks checkout persons to leave their key at the desk. No people visible at all. Maybe they had an emergency.

My room was in the basement and my broken window was literally ground level, room smells musty, A/C doesn't blow cold even set at 67*, broken dresser with missing/mismatched knobs (not that I would use it anyway...gross), the electric outlet next the bed is coming out of the wall and the light flickered as a result, bathroom reeks of mildew...

nice stop along the way. Room was clean, quiet and comfy beds. lots of food places right in the local area, some within walking. Was just passing through so not looking for any extras. Just a place to catch a wink.

This is a budget hotel, so don't expect all the frills. This is one of those "glad to have clean sheets and hot water" kind of places, NOT the best place for families, just the place for a quick overnight stay. Expect to kill a few spiders! I killed three before sleeping. The price is high for a M6 and... More

We will never go back to this place. The only good thing was it was cheap. The first room assigned to us already had someone in it! The next room was actually vacant, but there was only one chair, there was only one nightstand. The bathroom had a used bar of soap still in the shower and the bath mat... More

This place has the bare minimums. It was all I needed for the night. Clean, reasonable rate, friendly staff, and easy access. If you have an upper floor there was no elevator. I was on a motorcycle and they suggested I could park right outside the front door. They provided old towels for me to use to clean up my... More

Rooms seemed clean, the bed was ridiculous. See photo. We requested to be moved to a different room. The clerk said there were no other options because he was "full".
