Reviewed December 28, 2005

We were planning to stay at this inn two nights but were out after the first night. They charge over a hundred dollars for dirty rooms, dirty towels, bathrooms that are falling apart and an extremely unhelpful staff. It was highly disappointing and I would strongly discourage anyone from staying here. You can get more for your money at Glen Oaks Motel.
