6/10 Good

Not the best and not the worst
It was decent not the best and not the worst ive stayed at. Check in and out was easy. Room was all right. Carpet need's/should be replaced it has seen better days. The building has a not so great smell. But it is clean and no sketchy people hanging around, which maters most. It was worth it.

8/10 Very good

Stay was ok- clearly owner and family live in the hotel, so almost seems like a home (which can be good or bad). Breakfast was only plastic donuts and coffee so I think a much better job could be done in this area. Room was clean and comfortable.
