This is a nice little place to stay if you need somewhere to stay a night or two, especially on business. I remember my stay in February as being simple and quiet and comfortable, and I'm going to be staying one more night in a few weeks. The beds are large and comfortable, it has a small pool, and there is a small restaurant in the hotel as well. The rooms were clean, came with a small refrigerator and coffee maker. There is also a McDonald's across the street and a well stocked 7-11 next door (I was there as an Air Force recruit and realized very last minute that I was not supposed to have nail polish on, so I was very grateful for the 7-11 and it's travel sized nail polish remover), so if you have kids or you just need some snacks or basic vacationing extras, there are plenty of places you can go.
One thing that is important to understand though, is that this small hotel is used heavily for military use. There is a military processing station down the street and many of us stay at this particular hotel for the night. Now, my entire stay was pretty quiet and uneventful and I didn't have any problems with noise at all, but keep in mind that most of the people staying there are probably going to be military recruits. There was no crazy kids or loud noise from guests when I was there, but I DID get up at 3am, get ready, and get down to the restaurant by about 4am, so doors are likely to be opened and closed pretty early in the morning. As I said before though, I didn't hear any extra noise, it was pretty dim and quiet there from what I remember, and I stayed on a Friday night. :)
Overall, I'd recommend this hotel as a good place to stay for a night on business or a short stay on a road trip. It's definitely a nice, comfortable enough place to stay, but definitely not resort quality, so I wouldn't recommend extended stays.
