Good 6.2 From 35 reviews

Poor 2.0
Not a nice place
The room is basic which is fine for what you pay. However the beds are probably 20 years old. You can feel the springs. Couldn't sleep and one will get a back ache. Not really a budget inn to supply such amenities. Wont recommend it to any one for whatever reason. Hope the management does something about this soon.

Exceptional 10.0
Cheap & Suitable, with nice managers
Low-cost, budget hotel. Staff are extremely nice. (When they realized that I wasn't leaving town until the evening, they even offered to let me take a shower after I had checked out.)
