It was good! A little tight space, but it was good! Definitely a good spot to stay for 2 people!

Needs major update!
The hotel is old, from the 70s. The room was crowded, furniture was scratched, fridge needed defrosting, Fan in bathroom was loud. AC was also loud. There was no chairs or a table in the room. The good things were- all rooms are 1st floor, parking is ample, free coffee and cakes were good, but this place needs a MAJOR update. Matt and Kat were very nice and helpful.

Great location
Great staff. It’s a budget hotel, so if you’re looking for costs and value, this is your place. Location is convenient. It’s clean. My room had a small refrigerator and microwave. It was small, but comfortable. I’d go back in a heartbeat.

Get what you pay for
Not bad for a last second booking on memorial weekend. It was quiet and clean. a little to small and dated for my liking, so I won't be staying again though.
