Disliked: Staff & service
Never got a chance to stay here - was called 3 days before our trip saying they had no power. We found another hotel around the corner and took a drive by to check it out. There was indeed power, parking lot full of cars and were told when we called that they had no vacancy - what the heck!? Totally disappointed in the whole experience!!

The value for the price is unmistakable. I’m sad to see the old owners go, please do keep in mind that this property will be rapidly changing in the coming months. Currently a very friendly place to come and stay.
