Never again
I have never been so dissatisfied with a hotel stay in my life. I reserved a king bed room but was told that only a room with 2 queens was available. Mind you this reservation was made back in January so not sure why that couldn’t be accommodated as there was not very many other rooms booked. We got one of the run down ( not remodeled according to their description in ad). The room was totally outdated, floor not vacuumed and bathroom was disgustingly dirty. There was a huge swarm of gnats in the bathroom that got worse over time. We asked for some clean towels after a couple days and were given another set that had holes in them and had some huge stains on them. They didn’t look clean to us. I did look into booking another hotel but there were no other hotels that had any accommodations available during our time there. We stayed but left a day early because we could not take one more night there. I wished I would have taken pictures.

Don't let the outside discourage you.
When I pulled up to the hotel, I was shocked. The grass had not been cut in quite a while and I thought it was falling apart. I was scared then that I had been rooked. I saw the open sign so I went in. The office was very small and there was no one around. A sign told me to call "0" on the phone and when I did someone answered right away and then a woman came out of a door at the back of the office. She was pleasant and I paid and got my key (a regular key, not a card) and told where my room was. I drove around the back to get to my room. They are obviously remodeling the hotel and that is what I saw when I drove up. The room was spacious and very clean and smelled clean. Not fancy, but I don't care about that. Bed was comfortable. Sheets were very soft and white, no stains. I didn't like that it had two doors, one to outside and one to hallway, but they had deadbolts, so it was fine. I needed some toilet paper in the evening, not knowing there was some above the towels and I called and someone came very quickly to bring some to me. It was nice and quiet. All in all, I would stay there again. They did cut the grass the day after I checked in.

Simple and Basic. Sometimes that’s all you need.
It’s actually a nice hotel with nice people running it, they are doing some remodeling right now so I have to give them the benefit of the doubt. The bed was comfortable and the shower had plenty of hot water and pressure. We would definitely consider staying there again.
