Reviewed 9 March 2016 via mobile

This place was probably very nice many years ago. Unfortunately, now it's in tough shape and frequented by some unsavory folks. The room showed signs of wear and tear. The TV was very old and the picture quality was poor. The bathroom was in rough shape. I won't be returning there.

Pool is small but adequate.. Continental breakfast is included. The property is under renovations however not a noise issue ...

Now it is a disaster. besides the outside of being dirty, rotten wood, needing painting, the rooms are worse. the first room I was sent to smells like a cigar bar, after I specified a no smoking room. The second room smelled cleaner, but...

I rate the Inn as average. However, the staff I interfaced with, Jenn and Michelle were OUTSTANDING in their handling of people checking in who had issues. There skill was unsurpassed and I learned much in a few, short minutes about keeping to the policies while treating the customer with the utmost respect. Thank you, ladies, for the excellent lesson!...
