  • Amazing customer service! Hotel is older, but very quaint and very clean! I was a very tired nurse who needed some serious rest. The bed was amazing! I haven't slept that well ever while away from home! Affordable small town country feel with excellent management of every aspect! Highly recommend this place!

  • Stayed at this place for around a month while doing some road work just outside of town. Rooms are very clean. Staff very friendly. Food is good. Can't ask for anything else working out of town. Would gladly stay here if I'm ever in the area again.
