Nice clean rooms and outdoor pool, beautiful park on the river nearby. Light traffic/noise. Friendly staff. There is no free breakfast, but you can ask for a room with fridge, or there is a restaurant/café across the street named "Sassy's" - great sandwiches!

The room I stayed was really clean which is a plus. The staff was friendly. However the beds in our room was very hard. I did not sleep much due to being uncomfortable. They do not serve breakfast but there is a Hardees across the road.

Hi Merida C - thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. We are sorry to hear about your stay. The hotel is trying to renovate and update as quickly as possible as we had new owner's and new management take over last year. In 2015 we replaced the beds on the first floor, and flat...

Clean room, comfortable and quiet. Easier to find the place using US441 coming in from south vs the north side of the river. Minimal food in area; no food available at hotel - this is the only downside

Overnight stay was perfect. Not a fancy resort, amenities limited to 'fridge, hairdryer, etc. Room was clean, location quiet and felt safe. Would stay there again. Minutes away from casino, museum and restaurants.
