Don’t do it


September 12, 2023

If you are looking to stay here based off of photos, don’t do it. This property is outdated and in dire need of repairs. Cracks in the walls and floors, uneven floors, doors don’t line up. The best bet would be to start over. Tear it down and build a new property! Stay someplace else, there are plenty of choices in this area and this one is not worth the price we paid!

The parking lot alone should have been my indication to not even check in here.

Big Rooms


September 11, 2023

Check in was easy. Room is large and perfect for longer stays where you'd want to cook in the suite. Kitchen was stocked with working appliances, dishware and utensils.

The auto lights were AWFUL


September 04, 2023

The staff is the best thing about this hotel. From the cleaning staff to the front desk - all were wonderful. However, the room was very rundown. The door had a lot of missing paint, the coffee table was all chewed up and the phone did not have a dial tone. The worst part was all the lights come on automatically, which doesn't sound bad until the middle of the night when you are trying to go to the restroom, and you are practically knocked over with the light from EVERY room you walk NEAR. Waking anyone else in the room as well...
