When we checked in, we were told the price we were given was for a smoking room and that it was going to cost more.

When I arrived to the hotel I had to wait over 20 minutes for the front desk person to arrive, and I had called the hotel several times and there was no answer. Other than that the hotel was clean and the breakfast was nice. Check out was smooth.

When I arrived and tried to check in I was informed my prepaid reservation had been canceled and after a 14 hour drive I did not have a room waiting for me.

Great staff good room good price. Breakfast was good and for 69.00 what can you complain about. Front desk is pleasant and a lot of work and care is going into this place. The new bar looks great. And the management is on spot with taking care of any issues.
