First and foremost this is not a bed and breakfast this is more like a crack house. Between the stained flooring in the hallways and rooms, and the pleasant smells of dead animals while you walk to your esquisetly dirty room.

Room very clean and welcoming. Microwave and mini fridge. Close to Fareway grocery store. Front desk staff very helpful the woman working the front desk the evening of 12/16/2013 even called my room to inquire as to my satisfaction with the room and if there was anything I needed. Will definitely be back. Also the bed was very comfortable

There was breakfast food available (fruit, cereal, etc), but I never avail myself of hotel breakfasts. The coffee was good.
