Passin thru
Very clean and comfortable. I booked it online and the desk clerk was very upset over it. She berated her boss and complained about everything during the 10 minutes it took to check us in. She acted like it was such a bother to check us in.

The place is up for sale so when I pulled in there was a note on the door that said I had to call to get some one to get checked in with. Overall it was a lot better than the previous hotel I stayed at. Thank you

Nice small town hotel
Older small-town county hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean. No major damage. Older furniture, rugs, etc. Modern TV and appliances. I would stay again.
