Difficult to find building in the dark, inadequately marked. Located next to a busy highway with incessant noise. No hot water in sink-didn't try shower No instruction about using airconditioner control. Hard to find control because it isn't marked.

Fresh and clean rooms and bathrooms - very good value for a short stay. The Windmill made it easy to get something to eat, have the kids play some games, and have a beer and watch a football game. Easy freeway on and off, and the staff were very welcoming. Terrific!

First off idk where these pictures were taken haha, second off the cleanliness was horrible, there were spiders in the bathroom but besides that which I can deal with, there were dirt marks on the pillow cases, blood spots on the sheets, n literally dirt on other parts of the blankets. I went and bought sheets and blankets so I could actually sleep. Never again, location was cool but what was it I think holiday in was way better n cleaner just was sold out
