The staff at the front desk was extremely friendly and helpful. The room itself had some significant flaws. There was staples popping up in an unfinished strip between the bathroom and bedroom floors. Also the shower curtain rod completely fell out of place when my husband was trying to enter the shower.

Good place to stay for a couple nights while in town. Not too extravagant, but just what I needed.

The front desk person was very helpful and polite. When I went down to retrieve a heater for our room because our 1964 heater didn't work she was again very gracious and helpful. However I would never stay there again! Our sink leaked, no heat and many other issues with the room. Needs TLC!! No elevator either for those that...

Hotel was ok for the price. Room was in bad need of work as parts of walls were cracked and looked like water damage. The smell on the room was musty and even found some air fresheners under the bed. Many hairs on the the toilet. breakfast wasn't the best but we were happy to have something.

The exterior isn't anything fancy but who cares about that anyway. I'd rather have a comfortable stay and a good nights sleep as opposed to a fancy looking property and a bad stay.
