4/10 Fair

It was a last minute booking for a family visit. And I admit I was looking for a low cost option. Though the owners/management were lovely and accommodating, the property and room were even less than I was expecting. Carpeting and the cloth chair were stained. Bathroom was clean. Microwave didn't work....musty smell.

Basic room, older hotel, but ok
Stayed three nights. Bed was comfortable. Facility is old, but everything worked. Hot water in shower was fine. Convenient location. Continental breakfast was sparse - milk, one choice of cereal, muffins, coffee, bananas and oranges. Owner was awesome. Great service. Would stay again.
