Hotel is an OK place to book for an inexpensive one night stay. We checked in at 10:00 PM and checked out by 9:00 AM. The room was adequate in size and basically clean. The bathroom had been refurbished. If light is an issue this is not a good choice as lots of outdoor lights are left on all night...

The room wasn't as clean as I would have liked. The bed spread and carpet still had some dirt on them. The bathroom door had a hole in it. There is a ton of street noise especially with the plow trucks. Breakfast was toast, donuts, and cereal nothing much. However the price was good. I should have stayed in the...

While he and his girlfriend were admittedly around bon fires all day during the festival, neither of them are smokers. However, two days after the return from this wonderful birthday celebration, they learned that in addition to the $80 room charge, the staff...

Honestly, it's good for the cost. You don't pay an arm and a leg. The rooms are clean, it's a short ride to downtown, and the staff was friendly, and it had a nice shower. It's not the place I would go for a luxury/vacation stay but we only spent our time in the room sleeping. We went for the...

“Make sure you bring an over the door hanger with you if you have hanging clothes. Ask for room away from top of stairs.”
  • Couldn't even hang clothes on the dresser knobs.
  • Nice big dresser..just no hooks for hanging clothes.
  • Shoots cold water out of the jets...bummer!
  • Chair a little outdated.
  • King room..super comfy bed.
