4/10 Fair

This property is so run down, old, and hasn’t been kept up. It was clean and that is the only reason we continued our stay. The office wasn’t open during hours and when we called for towels they were RUDE! No service! This property needs to close or do major renovations.

I've stayed at the property a few times before and always enjoyed my stay...The room was clean, quiet and in a convenient location fitting my needs perfectly. Check in/out was easy. My only problem on this stay was the the TV channels consisted of only one which went out on the first night. I was lucky as I still had internet and could get my entertainment from other sources. I would stay there again. J
