Perfect for family visits

When there is no room at home, there is room at the Inn. Nice - nothing fancy - but perfectly adequate

Wonderful place to stay!

I was on a business trip and was dreading yet another hotel stay but this was a pleasant surprise. The room had everything I needed for business but also was cozy so I still felt relaxed. Staff was incredible! Would not hesitate to stay here again.

convenient shopping centers around

It was not too bad. Not Luxury but also not bad. The staff were friendly. They did not hesitate on rendering help where needed. Breakfast was not bad and it was also hot. They did not deliver on some things that was promised though. All in all it was a safe place to rest my head.

Almost Perfect

The hotel room was very clean. Our room lacked a mini fridge and a microwave. These two basic amenities is why I won't give the hotel 5 stars. The breakfast was fairly good. A big variety of food. The eggs and sausage area of the breakfast bar didn't always keep the food completely hot. There was at least one cop in the parking lot every night and morning. Sometimes they were getting free coffee. The air vent in the bathroom did not work at all.
