4/10 Fair

Their key machine was not working. We would have to call them everytime we need the door open or get lucky when the key machine will be fixed while we were there. Instead of checking in, we cancelled and got a refund. The parking lot was dark. We had to figure out how to get in & out of the property. This is also a part of KOA which forgot to mention. Expect a longer wait upon check-in because the campers have more involved process like camp info, direction, programs, etc.The staff was very and apologetic though & friendly.

Needs renovation
Under-staffed. Looked like a baby sitting service in the lobby. Peeling wall paper. But the bed was clean and comfortable.

Fine for a night
Older hotel but clean - the lock on the door didn’t work but we just moved the table in front of it - the air conditioner made a lot of noise.

Fantastic location! Nice clean room, great bed, great mattress. Strange no ice machine. Soda machine, no ice. Stairways were not well lit, could be a security concern for some.
