Spent the past weekend at this location and while the room was clean, that is about as far as anything good I have to say about it. The beds were extremely hard, the blankets were thin, and the ceiling light in my room did not work at all. There was no hot water for the shower/bathtub, and the water pressure for the toilet was extremely low. It had to be flushed several times to completely empty the bowl, which took even longer because the tank was slow to refill. Also, they charged my debit card on the day of my reservation BEFORE I had even checked into my room.

The front desk ladies were super nice and helpful. The overall property is dirty and not maintained. There was mold in the shower and on the bathroom floor. We did not have any towels in our room. There were people talking outside our room at 4:00 am and a truck honking for someone at 6:00 am. I stayed here because we meet family and this suited their financial need but I did not feel safe or comfortable the entire time.
