Free parking was the highlight. Room was decently clean. Free breakfast was a brown bag with some yucky pre-packages items. The place is run down, stuff in the room was broken and lying around, hallway carpets thoroughly trashed. Prostitutes & clients in the parking lot.

Good for shopping around

Good place if u have kids

The place was dirt. It is old and should be updated years ago. The microwave was not plugged in. There was nowhere to plug it in where it sat. The only plug that would work was in the restroom. Had to move it in there. Refrigerator was not plugged in. TV had to me manually setup each time it was turned on. Room was dirt and very old. The room smelled of smoke. People were smoking in the hall. Also loud music at 11:30 pm at night. Do not stay there.

Heating was out of service!! Facility is really run down and in desperate need of a COMPLETE renovation.

It is a kid friendly and a pet friendly.The best place in town
