Good enough
Stay at many hotels. Nothing made this stand out, positive or negative.

Cheap, good Wi-Fi, yet not too clean.
This place was interesting. It seemed to be run by a family living in the hotel. It smelled the second you walk in. I got to my room, which was surprisingly halfway nice looking. I took off my shoes and felt something that felt like tiny rocks poking me. I wish it was. It was finger nails. I called the front desk, and he came down within a minute with a vacuum cleaner to sweep and explained they had a new housekeeper. The rest of the floor wasn't all that clean either. The sink was clogged, and filters in the heating/AC unit were dirty (I only looked because one was sticking up when I first came into the room). I left and by the time I got back from a wedding I was attending, the clog had been fixed, although some of the dried mildew was left in my sink. The bed was surprisingly comfortable, despite the dried white stains on the cloth headboard that I wiped off with soap/water+ washcloth before laying down. Most hotel Wi-Fi is deplorable at best, but it was actually really good here. I'm a millennial, so this was almost redeemable for everything else. The breakfast was decent as well: plenty of coffee, OJ, waffles, cereal, and other carbs available. No hot food, besides the waffles, which is fine.

Keep looking
Furniture needed replaced, half the electrical outlets in the room didn't work, wifi was so weak I ended up using my phone as a hot spot. If you just need a place to sleep it will fit your needs. Outside that, I would look elsewhere.

Not great
Would not stay here again. It was strange they wanted $50 at site for refundable deposit. Got it back but had to wait short time for someone to check room. Room was damaged it was stinky and not the cleanest. I got ants on the desk because i had donuts.

Two day stay and issues.
1. The tub had something in it it looked clean but when water hit the tub it turned very slippery, my husband fell and hurt his hip and back. 2. when you walk on the tiles in the bathroom they stick to your feet and come up off the floor. 3. I felt very unsafe, Saturday September 24, 2016 my husband had left for meeting, at 7:30am someone opened the door and tried coming in, good thing I had chain on the door SINCE DEADBOLT DID NOT WORK. Saturday night at 9pm someone started banging on the door. We advised them they better move on, since we both carry. I HAVE NEVER FELT SO UNSAFE!!. I reported to front desk but they did not seem concerned. Then when checking out she ask if we had smoked in room, my reply NO WHY DO YOU THINK I WANTED A NO SMOKING ROOM. SHE WENT TO CHECK AND NEITHER OF US SMOKE. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND STAYING HERE.
