    Basic hotel, good location but on a busy street so noisy even though I asked for a quiet room. Clean. Owners are friendly. Not much of a breakfast. Free parking and a few spaces are covered. Prices are fair.

    Dirty place, Hypodermic needle was in the room with drugs when we arrived, bad parking and no coffee pot. Run down, needs new bedding and paint would help, dresser was old and dirty drawers. You get what you pay for.
