Comfortable and well-kept rooms in a renovated motor hotel. The hot water was wanting in the shower, but I mentioned this at check-out and they pledged to look into it. Breakfast was fine -- a good selection of pre-made items.

Everything but bed was good.
Nice hotel, appears recently remodeled. The breakfast really isn't a breakfast, but coffee was good. My only complaint was the bed felt like sleeping on plywood, extremely hard.
