After reading several negative reviews of this hotel, I was totally surprised to find it clean, friendly, quiet and accommodating to all my needs. I needed several special request because of the type of stay and all were exceeded. There is a Perkins Restaurant within 1/4 mile that offers 10% off your bill if you're are staying in a hotel....

After a full day of driving we did a late checkin with a friendly clerk. Unfortunately, it went downhill from there. The room is dated with decor that is unintentionally "retro". The TV was...

The hotel was overbooked. The site continued to send them reservations. In order to keep our reservation, they had to place us in a room with known issues.

There was a very regular schedule of empty roll offs being transported on a truck on a very poorly up kept street. The noise they made going past was like standing in the middle of a thunder storm. The first one that went by sounded like the building was coming down. I have seen better Windows on campers so there...

The guy at the counter was very nice and the rooms were very clean. The breakfast was continental but ok. This was in the dead of winter so it was very cold and thank goodness the heat in the room was working very well
