We are fairly priced in the market, yes our decor is outdated though our rooms are clean and the breakfast is on par with chain hotels that have much higher rates. Thank-you for your feed back we are working on upgrades on the upper floor with duvets and flat screen TVs.

You can't give a 3 star hotel 5 stars, but 4 is pretty good. The desk staff was friendly on arrival and departure, and accommodating. Breakfast? About what one would expect . . . typical waffles, juice, and tolerable coffee . . . but fresh fruit was available, home made muffins [so I was told, and they tasted like it],...

Thank-you for your feed back, my staff are the best although I may be bias. Yes the muffins are made in house, that is my job.

This is a good clean typical 2 or 3 star place. Shower was freshly tiled. Air conditioned. New microwave and fridge. Everything was clean. Bed spreads need to find the trash but for one night (12 hours total stay) and a free breakfast it was quite perfect.

We are in the process of redoing the decor in the rooms, we have started on the upper floor and working our way down. All of our rooms have at least a fridge, microwave, and coffee maker some also have a two burner cook-top. My staff work hard to ensure our rooms are clean and ready for our guests.

The breakfast was good . The room besides the stairs was a little noisy from guests going up and down stairs...

We travelled with 4 friends and booked 3 rooms. They were very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was good. The beds were comfortable as were the pillows. The reception was excellent. We arrived early because we were on motorbikes and got caught in the middle of a huge storm. She was fantastic and let us all check in early. It...

We stayed for the weekend to visit with family. The staff at this hotel are very friendly and easy to talk to. The only reason they didn't get five stars is because the parking lot still has all the sand left over from winter and it makes it really hard to park a motorcycle in the parking lot without slipping...

Our room was very clean and easy access. We had parking right at our door. The hotel is close to everything and the evenings were quiet. Every staff member I encountered was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast included was terrific.

Just a little on the High-side for cost of stay. Taxes in under a Hundred would be a good deal. Walls & Ceilings thin. - Heard every step the guy above us took getting up at 5:30 AM & having his morning evolutions. Could do with out that! They put on a breakfast toast cereal, make your own waffle. Nice.

Decent price,and the room was clean,beds were comfortable with lots of pillows! They were almost done reno's on the breakfast room,but set up the lobby area until then...typical continental breakfast selection...good and fresh.(I'm sure once the Reno was done the food selection would be much better) ****Would stay here again.
