Nice little Days Inn. It's not fancy, but it's clean and cozy. I'd def stay again. The bar on-site is nice too. The bartender was friendly as were the patrons. The concert my friend and I attended was awesome. Thanks for a nice stay.

Drove 2 hours to stay at hotel and when we got there I was told my reservation was canceled. The person working would not reinstate it and my rate was not honored. We went accross the street to the Ramada and had a fabulous time.
