The staff was polite but my family and I were very disappointed in the room quality. I knew we were not staying at a 4 star resort, but I did not expect to find multiple cockroaches near the fridge and bathtub.

With this location: remember, it is not a 5 star hotel, and they don't pretend to be one. It is a mom and pop location with what I believe to be a very fair, if not great rate, compared to some of the larger hotels in the area. They do their best with property that is obviously very old.
