  • 8.0.Very good

    When we got to the hotel I was greeted right away. The two ladies there were very helpful and polite. They held a simple conversation with me and I appreciated them helping me feel relaxed on a tense day. The rooms were cozy and clean. I had one huge issue and that was the shower wasn’t clean and no trash bags for the trash cans in room. We only stayed for a night but it would’ve been nice to hop in the shower had there not been any hair all over the place. The next morning the lady was so thoughtful and a huge help to us getting our breakfast items! She even gave us water for us back on the road. Kudos to her!

    For what I was paying I was expecting more. The “breakfast” was milk in a carton and a granola bar. Could have had individually packed breakfast. Worst stay
