Nice quiet little place. The last time we stayed was June 2014. The first time we stayed was a year earlier. It was cheaper then but I noticed this year, it was cleaner and TV's were updated. Room was clean, staff was so sweet. Wifi works awesome and it was a nice and quiet place to spend a weekend with... More

If you plan on checking into your room at this place after 11:00pm you will find that there is nobody at the front desk / nobody will answer the buzzer - The place is completely shut down. You can not get into your reserved room. Seriously !! They shut the place down at 11pm. If you are not there before... More

The tv didn't work. The jacuzzi tub was dirty. Fire alarm went off in middle of the night. And water pipes make horrible noises all night long. They were not willing to take any money off for all of the trouble we went through. Paid 151.00 could have stayed at best western for that price an had a nice room

The rooms are a good value and the hotel was clean and easy to access. Two things are desperately needed: NEW linens and NEW TV's. The Jacuzzi king room is very nice, has a Fireplace even! I asked for a corporate rate and was advised there was none. Very odd!

Solo female on a bike trip. Needed bed and shower and food. Don't know if all the rooms have them but she must have seen the fatigue (on bike for 4 long days first time this summer) and put me in a room with a jetted tub. It was heavenly. Ricky's right next door for food. Room was clean and... More

Stayed here because I was working and our company booked us in here. I should firstly mention that we worked here six months previous and stayed in the other location on the northbound side of the highway without incident. I am not writing this to complain or exaggerate because the rooms are sub par and not the cleanest, it called... More

Got to the hotel at 9:15 pm for check in. We were tired after a long day and looking forward to a good rest. Went up to the room we were assigned only to find it full of garbage with unmade dirty beds. The front desk apologized for the mistake and assured us it would be cleaned in five minutes.... More
