I stayed for one night at this hotel. I was in room 211.
The room - it was clean. It had a fridge and a microwave, which I paid $10 extra for. I also had a crib, also $10 additional. My son wouldn't sleep in the crib. He is 2.5 years old, and the crib was a bit flimsy and small for him. The toilet was a bit clogged, to the point that it filled to the rim before the water level went down. I told housekeeping and they sent someone right up, but he couldn't get it unclogged, so I told him to come back after I had checked out. The room was very warm, I didn't have to turn the heat on. Oh, I had no hot or even warm water when I went to take a shower in the morning. When I mentioned this at check out the clerk said other guests had also mentioned this, so they had turned it up. Great for the next guests, but really didn't help me much. He did apologize, in a very standard, rehearsed manner.
The hotel does offer a free continental breakfast. It is the standard items you find. Bagels, toast, scrambled/hard boiled eggs. Cereal, oatmeal, coffee, tea, juice, milk. Nothing above and beyond.
This hotel does allow pets. When I was leaving the hotel there was a dog standing in front of the door, not on a leash. I think the owner was at the front desk. The owner didn't call the dog, or say anything to me, like, oh don't worry hes friendly. So I made my way past the dog, hoping also that it didn't run out when I opened the door.
This hotel is off the highway, so you have to get back on the highway to go anywhere. There is another entrance off North St, but these two access points don't merge so if you come in off the highway you need to leave that way. If you come in off North St, you must leave by North St. I didn't like this. I was able to drive around the hotel on Saturday afternoon, but when I went to do that on Sunday it was blocked by a padlocked gate. Maybe since its the off season they do this, and maybe there is access during the summer. I don't know. Just something I found annoying.
So would I stay here again, I think that I would, it was a clean, affordable hotel. I just wish I had been able to take a hot shower, and flush the toilet without worrying about it overflowing, if I had been staying more than one night, these things would have been bigger issues.
