Old style american inn. Big rooms. Cute breakfest. Although the inn is non-smoking, you can still smell the smoke of the past. Good location if you have a car. Has Ihop, McDonalds, Stepless and Starbucks next to it.

The "neighbors" are parking lots of restaurants or stores. The area is well lit. There were several cars around - not vacant feeling. Overall, felt safe there.
