    Clean & friendly
    My dad was in the hospital nearby at Riverside. My mom had been staying in his room with him, I was driving through the area & stopped for just one night & wanted to get mom out even if just for one night. The gentleman at the front desk was very friendly, and when I told him that my mom was with me, he found us a room on the first floor so she wouldn’t have to climb the stairs. The hotel itself is very spartan, but clean. There was some construction going on at one of the buildings, but we didn’t have any problems.

    Poor 2.0
    I fell in the parking lot of the hotel because they had not salted and it was extremely icey. I ripped my jeans from the fall and banged up my knee badly. And when I let the two men at the front desk know about it, all they did was hand me a card for 10 percent off a future visit which will never happen ever. They did not care that I had gotten hurt or that I had ruined a pair of $60 jeans. I feel that the right thing to do would have been refund my night at the hotel so I could have At least been able to replace my jeans that were ripped from the fall.

    Fair 4.0
    I was very disappointed! Room floors were dirty. Rooms were dusty, example fridge was very dusty. The bathroom floor was dirty, there was a used band-aid and hospital tape on the base board
