    I have stayed here a few times while traveling for work. The rooms are clean & quiet. The staff has always been friendly. There is plenty of parking & close to the highway & restaurants. Nothing fancy, but a solid place to stay.

    The room was very clean, newer bedding and carpet. The bathroom was clean. Breakfast was basic, but ample. Small refrigerator in room. Just the hallways seemed dark. Good value for price point of room.
