Lame excuses !

"Sorry, but we do not have complimentary breakfast. We have problems with the websites that insist in posting that, even though we tell them we do not have". Well... How does this sound to you ? Oh, and, don't look under your bed !

Great value for area!!

This is by no means a 4 start hotel, however, considering a room here lets for half of the cost of the adjacent hotels, this was a great stay. The room was clean, the air conditioning was cold and all the staff were friendly to me. The hotel was quiet and located conveniently near I-90.

no big problem

The room and the hotel was just what we thought / paid for, a not expensive place to stay one night. We got what we paid for. Our only problem was that we were missing one washcloth, which was corrected quickly. Would stay there again.
