The staff was friendly, and very kind, they liked to chat to guests and never seemed disinterested or dismissive. The general manager had bright pink hair and was so personable! As was the front desk staff. I would definetly stay again just for the incredible staff. Rooms where very clean, and for the price, just what is expected.

It was Exactly what we needed to catch a wink on a road trip. Very Nice! A clean, comfortable & friendly place. Very basic but has all that you need. Comfortable beds, good WiFi connection, spacious room, well maintained, clean sheets, good lighting, a TV, a phone, and good housekeeping. Small bathroom with good water pressure.

The building looks a little rough on the outside but the rooms are very nice. Wood floors, colorful clean bedding, and small but adequate bathroom. Only minus- no free wifi and no hairdryer . I would stay again.
