“NON-SMOKING Rooms 2nd floor I recommend Rooms 206 or 204 because I have stayed in each very clean room I especially liked room 206 even though there was a small stain on the rug (probably soda or coffee) no bugs room 206 bathroom renovated very clean could upgrade tub and shower fixture but overall both good rooms.BOTH ROOMS ARE FACING THE HIGHWAY ,GREAT VIEW especially at night with traffic!”
