Great Value...Courteous Staff
February 13, 2019

Needed inexpensive accommodations for a friend. While there were limited amenities(no microwave or refrigerator in the room), for the price the room was clean and the bed & bedding comfortable and tidy. Provided coffee in the lobby which was nice. The staff, especially, Stephan, was courteous and very helpful.
