Thank you for taking time out of your day to review our hotel. We appreciate the kind words. We are a little different than most hotels. Meals are not provided by the hotel but there is a pantry available in the lobby to purchase breakfast, lunch and dinner. Take your purchase back to your room and cook away. Utensils, plates,...

I have stayed here a lot over the last 3 years, and it is always dependable. It is never anything other than clean, comfortable, and reasonably priced. I think the fact that there isn't a continental breakfast must keep costs down. They have a pizza night (it might be Monday or Tuesday) where there is free pizza in the lobby....

Thank you for staying with us as much as you do! Tuesday night is Pizza night (during the fall, winter and early spring). Once the weather breaks we break out the grill and cook hot dogs, hamburgers for all the guests. Salads, chips, soda and condiments are provided. Every Tuesday from 5pm-6pm. We have upgraded the linens for the beds...thanks...

If I could give the hotel 10 stars I would! The staff is truly amazing. Every Tuesday evening they provide the guests with free pizza. If you ever have a problem you tell them and its remedied very quickly. The hotel is close to several restaurants and easy access to the highway.
