We stayed 2 nights here and while they aren't the newest rooms out there, the place was very clean, comfortable and quiet. The staff was very friendly and the hotel is easy to find and get to. We would stay again.

Bed was comfortable enough for me. All non smoking rooms which was nice. Would stay there again. McD's across the street and David's Deli in the shopping...

We have stayed at this property several times. The grounds are very beautiful. It has the old motel charm on one level where you can back right up to your room. We just stayed there 10 days and had a great experience. Rates are better than most and the room is not ultra luxury but clean and comfortable. The property...
