Bad hotel. Shower was not working properly, carpet old and dirty, with stains. Cheap furniture, not surprisingly because the owner is an Indian. They like to use cheap things. The TV initially was not working, later the stuff fixed it but did not find any good channels. Poor breakfast menu. The only thing is good the guy in the front desk. He tried his best to fix problem but they are just too many. Will not recommend

The inside looked like a crummy ski lodge for the 60s or 70s. The pillows and sheets didn't look very clean and I just wasn't very comfortable in my room. "I felt gross staying there," would be my main reaction.

If you are passing through and just need a place to sleep, this will do. It’s not a place to stay for more than one night or for a vacation.
