New bedding is needed, the pillows, matress pad and sheets were very worn. The gentleman at the front desk was very pleasant and helpful. The continental breakfast was a bag of sugery stuff that looked old :-(

The couple that own the hotel are very nice. I had a couple of light bulbs out in my room upon arrival & they immediately changed them. Room was clean, although the shower curtain was stained & could be replaced with a new one. Same for the shower head. It is a really tiny, old looking one but it does have a lot of water pressure coming out, so can’t really complain about it. Breakfast could be better. It was a small bag of a small muffin & pastry & a cereal bar. No fruit or drinks included. Of course this is during Covid times, but it could be better. Otherwise I had a pleasant stay & will stay again. Thank you!

Other reviews made me skeptical, but I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Room had a bit of an unpleasant smell, but it quickly became a hidden odor. Staff was great, check-in was quick and easy. All in all, a great place.
