We stayed in 2 rooms (me, my mom and my aunt) for 4 nights, while I had a small surgery. The rooms were clean, the beds were nice and firm, the microwave and fridge were super helpful and a nice addition. The rooms were on the first floor because I also brought my dog.
The first room they gave me was closest to the outside door, it had a musty odor, so I asked for another room - got one 3 doors down and it was good. I saw a guy working on the sprinkler system while i was there, so I guess there was a problem.
the folks that worked there, espectially the afternoon evening crew were really sweet. And even though the place was booked, we didn't really even run into other folks. There is a Perkins Pancake house adjoining the parking lot, which my aunt and mom ate at almost every meal after they tried it out, it was just fine also.
Another sweet thing was when they found out why we were coming, they automatically give us their best rate, which was better than any I saw advertised. Bottom line? It ain't the Ritz, but in a way, I preferred it because of the warm helpful atmosphere and the kind folks who worked there. I'll be back if I'm ever in need of a place in the area.
