Great place with plenty of parking. The area looked pretty good and clean. Comfortable beds and big rooms. My only complaint was the towels were very rough on the skin. It's definitely missing some fabric softener in the wash. VERY ROUGH!

Hotel is conveniently located next to the highway. Room was clean and very affordable, would definitely stay there again. Only negatives as the Internet, although we needed a password, the connection was not secure.

Staff was very helpful, called me in the late evening to make sure I was going to make it. parking lot felt very safe, even though all the spaces close to the rooms were already taken, the spot I chose closer to Denny's didn't bother me, as the parking lot was well lit.

The entire staff from the check in clerk to housekeeping were all very helpful and respectful. the only problem which was not the fault of the staff was getting my rewards added to my rewards for the stay, second time, I was there in July also. Be nice if you can add them, if not I understand.

We needed an eatly check-in and the front desk was very accommodating. The room was clean and nice for the price. Conveniently off the freeway. Plenty of parking space. Overall a good place to stay for a night or two.
