We stopped around 830 pm no reservation and had no problem getting a bottom floor room. Great price and the waffles were great! The staff was friendly will stay again if we are this way! Very clean and has the retro decor and the bed was very comfy and the air was good and cold.

The rooms were simple but clean and accomodating. Staff was friendly and helpful. If you are traveling on a budget, it is a nice place to stay. Breakfast was basic but tasty with plenty available. Coffee was good.
