The rooms were recently renovated. Our room was clean and had all new furniture. The bathroom was also newly renovated. The beds were comfortable and the bedding was soft. We were very pleased with the motel. The staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast had a range of food, both hot and cold. My only complaint was the orange... More

This is a 2 story motel. There are single rooms on the second floor. The first floor is a little more expensive but there is a sliding glass door where you can park in front of your room. Each room has a mini fridge and microwave. The staff are all very friendly. There is a free hot breakfast in the... More

Stayed here for a night and some reviews made it sound rather nasty. It was all good. Rooms were perfect for a night, clean, modern enough for me, free wifi, close to the highway and food options. Staff were very pleasant; the hotel left me nothing to complain about whatsoever!

I was here for almost 2 weeks on business, and i was very satisfied with the room and service. The room was big enough to have a hide-a-bed in there along with a queen size bed, dresser, desk, night stand and upright unit to hang clothes up. I could connect my wdtv with the hd cable to the tv no... More

I would like to acknowledge Glenda. Glenda went above and beyond her duties to make us feel welcome and at home. She was very friendly with the other guests, making them feel at home as well, not only with her serving breakfast, but also making conversation with them. Thank you for all that you do.

Well, I will say this if you are doing your booking for this place try not to do it through hotels.com or another reservation website, as they make you pay more and if you have to check out early causes more issues than solves.

I have stayed here many times. Sometimes for work related travel and other times when off on my own journeys. One thing remains constant: this is always a pleasant stop on the way. Conveniently located, clean - and the staff are above and beyond. Breakfast was also a big plus!
