Would stay again.
Our room had stains on the carpet. The toilet handle was broken inside, so we told the desk, and they had it done by the time we got back. We didn’t really use the refrigerator, but something was leaking water there. BUT, overall, I would stay again. It had a good variety of foods for breakfast. The parking lot was well lit. Friendly staff.

Room was comfortable but smelled like wet carpet. I’m not a complainer so I didn’t say anything. Breakfast was delicious.

Traveling Through
It seems that it is under new owners or management based on the signage. Little older hotel but it looks like they are updating it. Clean, good breakfast and location.

6/10 Good

Check in was kind and easy, the first impression of our room was good, clean and good A/C. Lobby was clean and quiet, desk attendant was helpful. The bed pillows were not good at all. They just flatten when you lay on them. I used three under my head to sleep and felt like none. My main issue was the next morning, there was no way to switch the running bath water to shower. After giving up on that I tried to just take a bath and the stopper was broken. Ended up splashing water on myself to clean up. No bath mat for the ground so used one of our two bath towels to not slip. The breakfast was alright.
