Nothing special. Dated. But fine for a place to sleep. Dated decor. But the room had a microwave and fridge. Front desk was very helpful when we had a problem with our room key. The night attendant was very gracious and spent considerable time with us

Once again, a clean, comfortable room at a great price. The location is the best, the customer service is awesome, and if you just need a place to sleep, this is it! I stay here several times a year and keep coming back.

I stay here several times a year. It has always been clean and comfortable. They have some complimentary breakfast items, but don't fill up since the Northside Diner is nearby. The customer service is great and you can't beat the location and price!

Worst hotel stay of my life. Carpeting was dirty and worn. Halls were not air conditioned--stuffy and smelly. Three lamps in the room, one was broken and another had a bulb missing. A/C (Very noisy) had two functional settings: "High" and "Off". Shower had such low pressure that I had to bend at the waist to get my hair wet.... More
