    Simple hotel, good stay. Easy access to gas station, food and dessert places. Rooms are nice, no huge complaints, had a small issue with hot water/shower but the hotel addressed and solved the issue quickly.

    We had a wonderful stay... The room and bathroom was very nice and clean. We had a very good sleep and enjoyed the hot breakfast the next morning... I would highly recommend this hotel and will stay there again. Well done to management and staff.
