conveniently located near gas stations and eateries just a quick drive to downtown area about 10 min. or so. Carpet areas in the hallways could stand good shampooing or replacement Not sure what was going on with the breakfast area it was cordoned off and the area to get ice is on the first floor only. Looks a little more run down than what picture shows on the outside

We got in really late, after midnight, and the employee at the front desk greeted us had a smile and was positive. The staff was great and the room was what we expected. Breakfast had a good selection. The area around the hotel didn’t feel safe and there were numerous people outside of the hotel in the middle of the night.
