Good location and a great value. Seemed like a lot of renovations were underway. The staff was friendly but busy putting in new carpet. Definitely a work in progress. My room was clean with new sheets, comfy bed and a clean carpet but the pool area could use a lot of work.

The hotel has been opened under new management... theres a lot of nice changes from before with the new renovations. I found that the rooms were nice, each one was set up in a unique way and it seemed like the new management wants to open up areas of the hotel that were previously just being used for storage like the banquet hall area. It has wifi now. Its an affordable hotel and i didnt have any problems with the staff.

This place is undergoing extensive renovations. On the good side, my room had fresh paint, the bed was decent. But the carpet was not something I'd want to walk on, the hallway was dingy, the bath fixtures had rust and needed thorough cleaning, Coffee maker's cord does not reach the outlet on the sink counter, so it had to be plugged in by the TV, which meant unplugging the converter. Then the electrical box it plugs into was loose and pulling out. Air conditioner looked fairly new but the temp control knob was already broken. Entrance, halls and pool area needed cleaning. Restaurant (independently owned) looked awful, and you walk between it and the kitchen when going down the hall. That whole area was dirty, had chipped paint on the doors and it all is just entirely run down looking.

The smell from the smoking rooms permeates the hall. Get a room far away from them if you don't smoke.

I'm sure they are trying to renovate on a tight budget since it's not a busy area, and credit to them for it. But basics like keeping the sink fixtures shiny don't need a budget, they need attention. At least the bed was good.

Room Tip: Avoid anything near smoking rooms and restaurant.
