Hotel seemed clean but smelled like cigarette smoke. The women at the front desk was not consistently friendly. At time she was nice, others she was just plain snarky!

Staying here four 8 days visiting our grand daughter. For the money I think it is a very good pick. Staff is very friendly and helpful and great breakfast for a quick go. Our room is fairly modern and well kept

Ground floor behind the pool - the room has a dehumidifier to keep it dry. New laminate flooring and paint small but adequate - great for an overnight trip The breakfast had self made waffles and oatmeal included.

Booked on line for one price& when I checked in, it was a higher price. Sheets did not look as though they had been changed from previous guest. Wasn't any place to sit for breakfast.

The room was smell really bad. The person at the phone was rude. At check out was the same, the person was rude and not polite. Ideove around the building two times to find the building entrance. The breakfast place is too small. The room's bathroom was dirty.

We got in late and the staff member was very kind in quickly checking us in and offering us a complimentary cookie. Then we woke up to a delicious breakfast and the checkout was a breeze. Would definitely stay here again.
