“Satisfactory”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

The hotel was adequate for our purposes, as we only stayed one night. It was basic and simple. We had a room with two queen beds, and it was spacious, comfortable and clean but outdated. The bathroom seemed to be newer. Although the breakfast area was very small, the choices were quite good and the food was fine. Staff was friendly and helpful.

We were very pleased and satisfied with our stay. The comforts and amenities were well done from what was offered in the room to the complimentary breakfast. Front desk staff very courteous and helpful. We would stay at this facility again without hesitation.

The price was reasonable. The room wasn't horrible. The carpet was old and dirty. Our first floor room was noisy at all hours. The breakfast area was tiny and I can't tell you about the food because we didn't stay to eat. I really wouldn't tell my friends to stop here.

We have stayed here two times in the past year and we would definitely stay 3-20 times more. The place is clean and you can't beat the price. Unfortunately I can't comment on the free breakfast because we always sleep past the 9:30 am cut off. Probably due to the beds being very comfortable and it's quiet.
