Special thanks to Kip and Maria (in reception). They couldn't have been more helpful and hospitable. Under relatively new ownership, the proprietor (Kelly) has the personal touch when it comes to guests. He helped me out of an unexpected difficulty (problem with my cell phone) and stopped what he was doing in order to help me sort the protracted issue. His efforts saved me a lot of time and aggravation. Greatly appreciated.
Whilst the hotel is showing its age a little, my room was simple, clean and tidy. Plenty of [free] parking spaces. The complimentary breakfast was a good bonus to set me up for the day. A computer for guest use is in reception, which I needed. I didn't see or use the pool, so can't comment on that.
The hotel is conveniently located on US Hwy 19, but I heard no traffic noise from my room. For drinks or a meal, "The Tilted Kilt" sports bar is just a few minutes walk away.
I'd be happy to stay at this hotel again. The staff did it for me.
