      Such a great place and Wendy and Chris were incredibly hospitable and made our stay very clean and comfortable. The location is perfect and plenty of privacy. Would definitely stay again.

      the beds are a bit old and not that comfortable. One of the rooms had a bad smell.

      Stayed here on a business trip.  Place is very well located, close to Gateway.  Room was big, kitchen fully equipped, very clean.  Room cleaned in the morning.  Lots of security features.  Highly recommended.
