"The further into the property away from the highway would be quieter."
"I think all the rooms are excellent. Even the smallest ones have fridge, microwave, and coffee maker."
"Get the king size bed, it gives you a little extra space in the room and isn't that much more in cost. The place is very affordable."
"Further from the road / railroad track would be better."
"Piano Bar and Apache Pass Steakhouse are the best places to eat in Rockdale. Don't let the look of Piano Bar fool you."
