    Good 7,6 From 150 reviews

    Very good 8,0
    Clean, no frills and very affordable
    For the price, it was a decent place to stay. It was clean and that’s what matters most to me. The staff was nice. Breakfast was ok- nothing spectacular. It served my needs. I would stay again.

    Poor 2,0
    Ice machine was broke. Pool was filty. Room was dirty all kinds of dog hair under bed. Crumbs in drawer.
    Linda, us1 night trip with friends
    Good 6,0
    Room had an interesting scent. The shower was not completely clean. And shower ceiling was dripping, like the people above us had a leak. Toilet paper rolls weren’t replaced, the one on the holder was over half gone and last person had jagged ripped it off.
