          This is a budget hotel. If you're expecting something fancy, keep on looking. The breakfast was good, although I wish that I had microwaved the biscuits. The staff was very friendly. And, for a budget hotel, the bed was very comfortable.

          Good for a 1 night stop over. Staff was very pleasant. Room was bit run down. Strange odor in hallway. Didn't feel safe using laundry facility, there is a sitting room outside of the laundry room with guys drinking.

          Very clean room. Staff was always friendly and welcoming. Close to restaraunts and main streets through town. Liked having laundry available. Only thing I would have liked was a workout area or at least a treadmill.
