This hotel was such nicer than I expected for the price. It was very quiet, the ceilings are high (at least ten feet), the room was large and it was clean. The staff were nice. I would definitely stay here again.

My wife's classic Harley ate it's charging system, so, we were going to be in town for the night while it was repaired. The local Harley Davidson dealership sits between the hotel and the road, so the location couldn't be any more convenient.. The Harley chop has a special price deal with the hotel; unfortunately, it was homecoming weekend for...

This hotel has a lot going for it. It's pretty clean, staff is generally nice, rooms are large with a great shower, tv is actually hi def and its pet friendly with very nice lighted pet walk area. However the hotel has no ice makers because the rooms have full size fridges with an "ice maker". First day no ice,...

This hotel was just god awful. Me and my family planned a 2 night stay, but we didn't even stay for five minutes. Our hotel room was supposed to be smoke-free. Our hotel number was 420, and coincidental enough, it stunk like a cigar. The room was musty, and the window was open, in which they were trying to get...

We stayed here with a group of teenagers for an FBLA State Conference. The desk was unhelpful at first and rude by the end of our stay.
