Nice basic property. Great location right in the centre of town. Lots of free parking. Rooms are very basic and small but everything worked, beds were comfortable and the bathroom had been renovated. The hot water system is very wasteful in that it takes at least 5 minutes of running the water to finally get hot water - what a waste!!! Note that the rooms are on the second floor and there is no elevator so if stairs are an issue for you, take note.

It’s def a motel - easy to check in and out. It’s something you don’t book if you want a bed with a view. The room was a great size, basic but good amenities, tv that has Netflix was nice and the staff was very friendly. The bathroom could be cleaner- it smelled slightly of urine and the toilet seat was stained with urine when we entered the room.

The property itself is very old, and we were a little bit shocked when we arrived, as the photos on Expedia do not include clear photos of the exterior. The rooms have been renovated, but the carpet in our room was dirty and a gap in the window in the bathroom had been sealed up with duct tape. We could hear other guests through the walls until fairy late in the evening. It was serviceable, but I would not stay here again.
