I hardly ever write a review and I feel really bad writing poor ones. However, It's time to step up the game. I'm a business owner as well and if my hotels maintenance was not up to par I wouldn't be making any money. Our heater did not work in our room at all. I let the front desk know... More

The building is straight out of the 60's and the interior is very western. Everything is well kept and clean. The staff I had interactions with were extremely friendly and helpful. There is always...

Nice hotel. Rooms were clean and spacious, and the staff was very nice and easy to deal with. A good buy for the price and location. There is a casino in the bottom floor, but noise and smoke were never an issue.
