This place is average but it accepts pets and is right across the street from the amphitheater so it is quite convenient for a concert or show. This is not the Ritz but it was clean and the staff was very friendly.

Luckily, there was no fairground event happening so we were able to get a room. We had a non-smoking king bed room. It was comfortable and adequately appointed for a budget motel. Although the Wing House is next door, we wanted something else for dinner. We drove a few miles away to other eateries in the area.TIP! This location charges... More

The property is located just across the street form the Fairgrounds concert venue. Easy walk to shows and no parking hassles. The room smelled like mold and mildew.
