We were in town for a basketball tournament and just stayed for a night. Friendly staff, clean rooms, clean appearance, pool was bit cold but we didn't really use it. Check in was super easy and the girl was very friendly

Kind of a tired property. Needs better clean up around the pool area. My 18month old grandson found an almost ate a chewing tobacco pouch left in the pool area. The room was ok but also tired feeling.
