The hotel from the outside looks like a hotel to avoid but upon entering it has some surprises. First let me say this is a hotel that charges $50.00 for a room over the July 4th weekend. So if you are expecting immaculate then go somewhere else. In reality you actually get more then you pay for.
I will start with the good. The owner is extremely friendly and goes out of his way to make your stay enjoyable. The biggest surprise was the quality of the breakfast. He has a different special every day and prepares a tasty treat to send his guest on their way. The dining room is large and the cleanest part of the hotel. I stayed two nights and had a good nights sleep both nights with no troubling noise. The bed although not fancy was comfortable.
The bad. .The rooms are badly worn and in need of an update. The shower is small and the faucets are hard to work. I strongly recommend you bring your own towels as the ones provided are almost see thru and will not do the job. I used the provided towels to lay on the bathroom floor before walking on it. I have serious questions how often the bedspreads are cleaned. Finally we stayed two nights and had no room service during our stay.
In short I would stay at this hotel again if I was making last minute plans to the area and could not get a reservation in a different hotel as was the case this time. If you are short on money and want an inexpensive hotel to stay at with a good breakfast then this place would fit the bill.
