I love this location and the very friendly service. This hotel has excellent clean rooms, beautiful pool. I stayed there with my daughter who was visiting from the military and we both had a lot of fun. I will be making sure that I will be staying here again. I highly recommend staying here!

Looks like a low class motel6. Bed was hard, just springs, no padding. Sheets looked like already slept in. TV Remote didn't work. Not a 2star hotel. Internet was snail pace, gave up trying. They should hire real maids...that care about not leaving globs in bathroom, and know how to change sheets. Really??? Sleep in your car....

Stayed one night and the room smells really damp and musty. Not only that, its internet is something from the Stone age, couldn't get anything done on it. The room was something like an upgrade you would get for good behavior in prison. I wouldn't recommend staying her at all.

This establishment has all the makings of a good night stopover, clean, personable staff, decent free breakfast, etc. except...take an overly large room and then cram everything together in a small area leaving the rest of the room empty. Make sure you place the refrigerator right next to the head of the bed so that all night long all you hear is the unit starting and stopping, noisily. Why not simply unplug it? The power cord joins a number of others and then...One could choose to rearrange the room but I am not into that when I can simply stay elsewhere in the future. Perhaps the management may choose to rectify this situation--if so everyone would benefit but I doubt that will happen as it looks like it has been this way for a long time and I, surely, can not have been the only one to have lost a night's rest because of this.

This place is listed as a two star hotel.why? I have no idea. We stayed for four nights and will not stay another if it was free. The first floor windows are level with the parking lot. The bedding had multiple holes which I took back to the front desk because there was no one to come and change them (at 4:30pm) This place is old and in need of a major renovation.

I believe this is a family run place and they were all hanging out in lobby and standing around and behind me talking in their native tongue which made me a little uncomfortable. The desk reception was nice though. My room was a first floor room that was not appealing. White cinder block walls and decor made me feel as if I were in a detention center. I'll pay more and stay somewhere else next time.

We did not have a good night it was very laud dogs were barking, Alcohol issues, Cops were around after 2am after that it was not so bad anymore I rather pay more and feel better and safer Wifi is free room was clean

This place is worst then awful! The walls are paper thin, the beds are uncomfortable and the pillows are more then flat. The toilet paper didn't even look changed from the previous guest. The staff started vacuuming at 8 am and as soon as we left our room we were greeted by staff questioning us if we were checking out. We left at 9:00am there was no continental breakfast being served. When we told the staff at the front desk about our complaints, they told us what do we expect for that price? and argued about the time they started vacuuming. This inn obviously does not care about their guests. Stay some where, any where else. this place isn't even worth the little money you save. Trust me when I say do not stay here

I would never stay again Accused us and other customers of smoking in room which we DIDN'T do instead we pay $100 or they call cops and $200 fine. The place smelled BAD! And the staff followed you around!!! Never stay here!!!!!!

This hotel is perfect for the no thrills traveler who doesn't want to sell off a kidney to stay here. The beds were comfortable and the place was clean. The bathroom very small, have to go outside to change your mind. The hotel is easy to find and perfect place for you to find anything in town. Would we stay again, yes. The staff are friendly, although could use a bit of updating. The breakfast well, think they found some dirt in the ditch and made the coffee with. PS, couple of things you don't cheap out on peanut butter, toilet paper (which they could get a little better) and coffee. Just a mental note for people. Since the oil boom there are a lot of guys who are working on the rigs and staying here.
