A simple hotel with spacious rooms and colorful walls, this place is good for groups and families.

Perks include an outdoor pool, a small gym and a pillow menu. A complimentary breakfast buffet sets you up for the day, and once you’re done strolling around nearby Lander University campus with your amazingly grown-up child, you can take them for a meal at Montague’s Restaurant, a short drive from the hotel.
