"Terrible. Only spent one of two nights."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Room was clean. I ask for a chair to be in the room that I could sleep in (as I haven't slept in a bed in 20+ years due to health problems). No chair. I was never asleep. I didn't spend the second night. Without a recliner in the room, I won't be staying again. Other than these issues, the room would've passed the test. I actually think my money for the 2nd night should be refunded.

08-Jan-2019 Verified Review, stayed from Sun Jan 06 to Tue Jan 08 2019 at a $87.96 average nightly rate.
"A great place to spend the night with family!"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Very nice accommodations! Room was very neat, clean with plenty of room. I would definitely book another room in the future and also make referrals to others looking for hotel accommodations in the future.
