"Manisha, our hostess, and her little dog Lucky were very welcoming and helpful. The hotel was newly remodeled and very clean. The breakfast in the morning was included and okay. Fruit, cereal but nothing fancy. It was next door to a good reaurant called Montana Mikes and conveniently located off the freeway. I’d stay here again."
