5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Recently remodeled. Very clean and crisp looking. Next door to a Denny's which you can receive a 20% discount. Across the street is a McDonald's, too. Very close to other stores and conveniences. Staff were extremely friendly and knowledgeable of the area.

2/5

  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service

We booked a room with 3 queen beds, when we arrived there was a problem with that room. No attempts were made to notify us of the problem prior to our arrival. The roll a away bed they offered didn’t fit anywhere in the room. There were hairs on the sheets and the room was too “cozy”.

  • Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities

In unit 130 there was a bunch of pincher bugs in the room. The staff person said we sprayed and they're dying. They sure didn't look like they were. So they moved me to another room which was better. The microwave was really loud and the mini fridge was too.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

Older property but recently renovated. With that being said, you could hear all the doors opening and closing, people waking upstairs/using the stairs, using their sinks etc. Very thin walls. I highly suggest you bring ear plugs esp if you’re a light sleeper. The sink/shower also drained very poorly.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

Remodel is nice. Walking distance to food and grocery store. Kohls close by and Dennys onsite. Right next door to the Madonna Inn
