The bed in the hotel room was very uncomfortable and the pillows were very well used and packed down - hard. There didn't seem to be much insulation between the floors and the people upstairs were very noisy and sounded as if there were children running and jumping until well after midnight. The air conditioner had only one speed and could not be changed, so it was not very cool in the room for sleeping. There was no coffee pot in the room and no Bible. I asked about the Bible and was told he would replace it later, but he did not offer to give me one to take to the room as I wanted to read. Also, he was not able to give me a receipt or tell me the cost of the room. I told him that it was a handicapped room and we had not requested one, so I did not want to pay the extra for handicapped room and was told I would have to take it up with you. I would not recommend this hotel.

Good hotel for short stay.

The breakfast was only cereal, juice, coffee and your typical breads. We had a problem with only receiving one pillow per person. I would recommend for a one night stay only.
