If you want a hotel with clean, large rooms, with large patio doors and friendly staff, this is a good place to go. The prices are fair and the location is good too, near shopping and major routes. The only reason I did not give this a four is the breakfast is just about non existent,in fact, there is not...

This is not a fancy hotel. But if you're simply looking for a room to stay in this area, it's adequate. The decor is definitely dated, but the room was clean and the bed was comfortable. Unlike other reviews, I found the service just fine and in fact proactive in addressing some help I needed. The adjacent restaurant is good...

Room was clean. Hallway was a disaster. Carpet is very old and doesn't look as if it has been cleaned in years.

When we arrived to the hotel around 11:30pm at check-in the clerk was very rude. Before leaving to go to my room i asked her if my room accommodated 5 people because we are 2A & 3c She replied with "No, i don't know why you think it would fit 5 people" as if i am familiar with this property....

This particular location was quiet but it was a Tuesday. The front desk guy was more into the tv than being helpful. I swear his eyes never left the tv. The furniture was pretty dated but seemed clean enough. For a couple more dollars, the red roof down the street is a better option.

This place need to be renovated, there was NO LOCKS between the outside of the building and inside, no security. It is a total mess especially in the check in office! Very disappointed!

“Bring toiletries, good thing we always do, because they only have soap in the bathroom. Closer to the lobby are the rooms with queen or double beds. The kings are all the way to the back.”
