Stayed here a couple of times. Fred at the front desk is the best. The place does need a little work, but the management is making improvements. Rooms are clean and the beds comfortable. Some rooms are newer. Great weekly rates. All the staff is very friendly.

This place was probably very nice many years ago. Unfortunately, now it's in tough shape and frequented by some unsavory folks. The room showed signs of wear and tear. The TV was very old and the picture quality was poor. The bathroom was in rough shape. I won't be returning there.
