The Good
Many guests enjoyed their stays at this hotel, which was frequently used as a stopover along the highway. This is an older walk-up property conveniently located just off the highway that is close to the centre of town, with safe parking, and a friendly and enjoyable restaurant attached. 

Besides a great breakfast, guests said the restaurant offered a good range of meals which included Greek food, soups, thin-crust pizza and burgers, with friendly service.

Although the rooms were older, they had been updated, and were clean and well presented with modern bedding. All rooms had a mini-fridge and microwave and many guests were pleased with the comfort of their beds.

The front desk staff were very friendly and kind, according to many guests.

Wi-Fi was rated as good overall by guests in online surveys, and guests usually appreciated the value supplied by this hotel.

Guests also liked: the grassy area at the rear of the property for walking the dogs.

The Bad
There were very few complaints found online.

There was the odd complaint about having reserved a queen bed and getting a double bed.

A few guests said the hotel could use some renovating, new carpet and paint to the exterior.

A couple of guests suggested getting a room at the back of the hotel, in order to avoid noise from the highway traffic at the front (although others said the highway-side rooms were quiet).

Occasionally a guest mentioned the room size as being a little small, too dark, or the TV having fuzzy reception.
