Reviewed 6 June 2020

Rooms have been nicely redecorated. Old carpet and drapes were removed and replaced with much cleaner feeling laminate and shutters. Convenient power outlets have been added. We enjoyed our stay until a big delivery refrigerator truck with a nonstop compressor was parked outside the room windows. Called front office to see when noise and vibration into room would end and were told "That's the way it will be all night. The driver is staying and the compressor will continue to run."Asked if it could be parked away from rooms, but was told no. After returning home, called hotel to discuss and were told driver stays every Thursday night, and compressor runs. You fix up the rooms to entice customers, but ruin chances of return after this sort of disruption. Would like to give higher rating, but because of this, can not.

20 bucks early check in...Great hotel..Great people..Great location...Great newly remodeled rooms, TCMovie channel last time I checked and good free wifi....nice pool and Jacuzzi ... plenty of near room safe parking...gas station nearby and a Dennys restaurant and a McDonalds..Madonna Inn right next door...Vagabond Inn might still be as of Mid February 2020 having work being done on the building during the days with workers about the place. And the Vagabond Hotel is used by many construction workers at night to stay at on a regular basis but they seem to stay in their rooms and quiet. Their big trucks sometimes have those loud back up beepers at 6 am so there can be that. Nearby road noise can be an issue at times with the front window open.

Room tip: Best to be as close to the Pool as possible less road noise there bottom level..
