Hotel was A++++. Very clean, awesome staff, food area very well cleaned & well stocked. Wanted for nothing!! Ask for early check in, received it with no problems. Would not stay anywhere else!! Even if you have to drive out of your way to get here....Do It! It is definitely worth the time/effort.

Stayed here for only one night. But it was close to all shopping dining. Access to highway a little confusing at first. Clean rooms staff were very attentive and helpful. Restaurant inside if you don't want to leave. Nice pool.

I barely noticed the "older" and "outdated" building that previous reviewers mentioned. What I found was a clean comfortable room (did miss a fridge and microwave), great breakfast, yummy cookies and free cocktails. All of this was great but the best was the friendly helpful staff.

This place needs to be demolished and rebuilt or simply rebranded as a motel 8. I couldn't use the internet because it was so slow.

“Get a second floor room. First floor rooms look directly on to the parking lot and the curtains must stay closed for privacy, so there is no natural light available!”
