Easy to find, lots of parking. At first we had no wifi but were moved to a new room right away. While the room cooled off we went to Walmart for a few things. Would of liked a dip in the pool, but the water was bright green. Our room is spacious and the bed is comfy.

The front desk staff were outstanding. Upon check in we found the a/c wasn't working...Leslie (?I think was her name? ) quickly got us into another room. The hotel was mostly clean though old, very quiet and comfortable! If or when we come this way again we would stay there again!
