3/5 Okay

Traveled with partner
Liked: Staff & service
Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
The property was okay. Nothing particularly great about the property, but also not the worst hotel we have stayed at. The walls were extremely thin and we could actually hear the people on the other end of the phone that our neighbor was talking to. Bathroom was a little dingy and the lighting was harsh. We stopped here because most other hotels/motels were sold out. I would probably try another place and see if we had better luck next time. But while we wouldn't recommend this property, I wouldn't begrudge anyone who decided to stay here.
