"Homey Place, Priced Right."

"Small hotel, few units, homey feel with large rooms. Sufficient in amenities, having fridge and microwave was helpful since I had cooler items that needed refrigeration and I picked up something from the grocery store around the corner which needed heating up. Having a coffee pot would have been nice. Lots of hot water, relatively clean, carpet newer. One thing made me feel a little yucky - found someone else's hair on the pillow. I guess it could have been from the bed covering."

"Kings Inn"

"the Kings Inn gave me what I wanted. A clean room, clean bed, clean bathroom to spend the night. I went to Casinio Ram and was not going to spend too much, The Kings Inn was about 10 min away and a lot better priced. I will be back."
