Can't say i had a great experience with this property! My wife and I checked out with insect bites, Which we suspect to bed bugs. Hotel management was advised of this and are currently working to reimburst us for our stay. They advised they'll be calling in exterminator to inspect and handled problem. But as a followup, I advised hotel management that I would contact the local Health Dept. to make sure no other customers will have to suffer same issue.

Stay here often & rooms always clean. Mattresses could use an upgrade. My back always seems to hurt when I leave. Overall, good experience.

Nothing Fancy but Clean

If you are looking for a no frills place to stay, this is the place. It was a bit run down but clean. The staff were friendly and polite.

Nice place to stay

Good place to stay for the money. Was very clean, my husband said the beds were too hard, but I didn't think so. It was quiet on Thursday night, but Friday night there were people above us and you could hear them walk around a lot. Other than that, was nice and will probably stay there again.
