Ok place for a stopover
Owner does not speak nor understand English very well; difficult to communicate. Our a/c was extremely loud so we were moved to another room. Pet friendly, but a $20 charge. The rooms were clean, convenient location. Casino across the street, walk to restaurants. Pool was well kept.

The gentleman at the front desk doesn’t speak much English so it was hard for him to answer questions, otherwise he was pleasant and check in went fine. The ice machine wasn’t working so that was disappointing.
