Nice accommodation for weekend get away

Hotel staffs are polite and accommodating. The building locate right next to a carwash so ask for room away from the carwash otherwise you will hear the noise all the time. Not bad for one night get away otherwise I'll stay somewhere else.

Like a Nice Motel

Just spent one night there. We had a suite, so it was a nice size, but bathroom needed updating and wallpaper was peeling off the walls. It had a kitchen which would be nice for a family and/or longer stay. Breakfast was very good.
