Rooms were clean and great for the price. Pool bottom needed another coat of paint but was clean. Overall , we’d definitely stay again.

Two thumbs up !!
I think it's a great place to stay. We were doing a show at the fairgrounds ,so the location could not have been better! I especially appreciated the hot coffee that was available before the normal breakfast time ! Breakfast was good,too ! My only complaint is the pillows. We had one that was soft ,but the other 3 were very flat and hard. They could use new ones. Next time I will bring my own because we do the show twice a year and I will definitely stay here every time !

Decent hotel for the price
We booked a double queen room. The room was fairly small compared to other hotels, but it seemed to be clean. The only not-so-clean thing that I noticed was the mold on the bathroom ceiling. I know it happens, but I also know it’s fairly easy to scrub off. Just seems like something that should be done for the guest’s comfort. The bedside were comfy, but they also only had three square pillows on each bed. They were an odd size that I’ve never seen before but they still worked. The hotel staff was nice and the breakfast was good.
