I stay at this property frequently and although it's a bit dated it is consistently clean and comfortable. Good breakfast bar, and an overall good value. Convenient location for area hospitals and restaurants.

I became a bit frustrated and impatient, but Tequila, the Guest Services Representative, kept a calm demeanor and helped me work through the situation. She is a credit to the hospitality industry and quite knowledgeable about proper procedures. I actually apologized for my initial flippant behavior. She was very... More

Nice, clean, pet friendly hotel. We had been looking for a room for 3 hours (driving from New Orleans) finally found this place. Was very pleased with the pet friendly room, you would have never known that there were pets there previously. It was clean and the bed was wonderful. Would definitely stay here again.
