What our guests are saying about us


Our family stayed last month and said it was amazing. Rooms are huge and very clean!


Don’t let this small town, or the outside of this hotel fool you. Awaiting inside are NEW, CLEAN, and very comfortable rooms. Ranai at the front desk goes above and beyond and welcomed us in the evening, and also met us in the lobby with breakfast in the morning. Will definitely go out of my way to stay here again!
