Location of this hotel right off the 400 was perfect for our needs. Nice clean room with a fridge and coffee maker. The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful in suggesting a place for dinner. Will definitely stay again.

Stay away! Carpet in the room was covered in dog hair and the room smelt like a pound. We left the windows open and used our own sheets and pillows. I thought that was going to be as bad as it gets until.... at 1:30 in the morning I found a bedbug in a face towel. Paid over 100 dollars... More

We got a very good rate for our group when we stayed for a soccer tournament in July. Beds were comfortable. The room was very basic with a small fridge that we had requested. Carpets need cleaning. Very basic breakfast, no pool, difficult to entertain a group of kids.

Hair on the bed, the cover was frayed, and even though got a non smoking room, the bed smelled of smoke because they probably wash it with bedding from smoking rooms. Pillows are very soft and small. Room is cold.

Spent two weeks here on business. Overall it's an okay place to get some rest. Decent breakfast and all but one of the staff were very kind and helpful. I'll stay again on my next visit because of it's location, reasonable rate and generally warm service.
