Now the rooms are just pretty much two beds and a TV. There is nothing special in the rooms. They are clean and do not smell.... More

We were able to get a very nice room on Labor Day weekend for a great price. The room and hotel grounds were very clean. We booked our room through Jerry, he was very nice and had us laughing every time we ran into him. We will definitely be back!

They have no customer service skills. Every rude people answering the phone. I questioned why a room was given away and he yelled at me ....then hung up. My advice stay at another hotel even if it costs more money.
