Good 7.2 From 98 reviews

Good 6.0
Everything you need in very cramped quarters.
Somehow, into a very small room all the amenities one would need have been crammed.. like.a comfortable queen bed, a desk , a good sized mini fridge, a microwave, a coffee maker, a big flat screen HD TV with HBO, popular entertainment and sports channels, good Wi-Fi, a swivel office chair and another cushioned chair, an iron and ironing board, sufficient lighting and power outlets. The bathroom had a shower/tub combination. Toiletries could be improved. Beware,there are more rooms than parking spaces at this property.

Just ok could be a bit cleaner and needs updating
Maureen, us1 night family trip
Fair 4.0
The inside was old and rundown. I was placed in a handicap accessible room for some reason. Wen did not use the shower because we did not have shower shoes. The local area was dirty. The is a private residence next to our room that had a dog running around while we were trying to unload our belongings to get in the room and old furniture stacked up outside. The road this business is on is extremely noisy, I did not find the desk person very pleasant or helpful. I would sleep in my car before I would stay at this establishment again.

Exceptional 10.0
Great service, great room, and great price. I arrived late for my stay, not only did I get service with a smile, they upgraded my room as well.
Cameron, us1 night romance trip
Very Good 8.0
Overall, the room wasn’t too bad. There was a weird smell coming from the bathroom toilet, and a burning smell when I turned the heater on. The walls are kind of thin as well but that’s what you get for a going pretty cheap. We only needed a place to spend the night so overall it was a decent place for a night just to sleep at. I’d give it a 5.5 or 6/10
