2/5 Poor

Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Property was hard to find. Hotel did not have reservations, When he found it on expedia he could not figure out how to port it over to his system. He was frustrated and called his supervisor. When I asked to see the room before I signed the paperwork, he was very indignant And said”i went through the hassle and you don’t know if your going to take the room” He was visibly put off. I took the keys and the rooms were tiny but we were tired so we went ahead and stayed. Truly not worth the cost.

Half the price of any other place but also less than half the space. Very small everything. Be ready to hear everything your neighbors do. Sneezing, TV, sex, if the people in the room next to you are doing it you’ll hear it. That being said you can’t beat the location and price. Everything was clean.

The owner is very nice. The rooms are 10x7 ft. very little room to move around. Older decor with not very comfortable bed. You can hear everyone talking in the other rooms. It is the cheapest place in the area if you are looking to save money. And it was clean.
