The property was clean and is in a great location. The staff was kind and efficient. It is a motel with pool construction going on. The rooms are small with minimal decor. I would stay there again.

Location is excellent, ease and convenience of getting to all the main attractions just a short walk. Hotel is dated, but very clean, felt safe, does need venting for the bathroom....had to keep door open to allow steam from shower to escape. Would recommend.

The attitude of the front desk staff wa at times a bit surly. We were a group of five with three rooms...tw were fine and one was loaded with mold and ants and smelled terrible. One of our travelers could not sleep and tried to cancel the next four nights, going to another hotel. The room - #5 - was thoroughly cleaned on Sunday and was fine for the rest if the week. The lady that only stayed one night requested a refund for the four unused nights andd was refused and said she would have to take this up with Traelocity. By the way, the room WAS rented Monday through :Friday so the motel received payment twice for the same room.

It was all around great. We were lucky enough to have a porch and be by the office/breakfast area and bar.

Staff was awesome and accommodating from renting a cart to help get around to calling a cab to the airport after checkout.
