Great location and service from staff. Tina was very friendly and showed me around the area. The interior of the room had the necessities although not luxurious everything that was needed was available. The outside noise was bearable and the traffic was minimal. Overall a positive experience.

Stayed here overnight and was very satisfied. Can't beat the price and location. Friendly front desk staff. Room and bathroom were clean. Free WiFi! What more can you can you expect for 100 bucks? They have shuttles running to the airport at discounted prices, which was very convenient as i had an early morning flght to catch.

We spoke to the manager about our one complaint; the drapes did not overlap which let in too much light at night. He was grateful for our comment and...
