"We were in town to visit family. More expensive than the hotel we stayed at last time, but very reasonable compared to big city hotels. And waaaaaaay better than the last place we stayed at, which reeked of cigarette smoke & had no amenities. At the S.Gate Inn we brought several family guests in for the cont breakfast at a very reasonable extra charge."
