6/10 Good

Inn near strip mall
The Inn is ok. Not as nice as it looks on the picture but you do have view of the "lake" which is more of a pond. Some parts of the room seem updated and renovated and other parts not. Bed and headboard area seemed new. Door to room looked like someone had tried to force it open with crow bar. It is near the Dunes National Park and near restaurants
