Hotel was excellent for the price. Nice clean room, wonderful breakfast and great internet connection. Check in/out were a breeze. However, I recommend bringing your own pillow. The room comes with little square pillows that are hard to stay on if you turn in bed. Other than that, it was a pleasant stay.

6 of us were on a cross country motorcycle trip to The Tail of the Dragon, and were very happy with the motel. Great service and good selection for breakfast .... didn't have to stop again just hit the road. Thank you!

Very nice, clean and roomy enough with all the amenities and had a plug in the base of the lamp for the computer and there was a nice-sized table and 2 chairs. TV remote was easy to operate. Nice long sink area separate from the toilet area. Beds and pillows were comfortable. Breakfast was very good. O.J. not watered down,... More

We stayed in a non smoking room, but it reeked with stale cigerette smoke. I was too tired to request a new room...and I carry air freshener for things like this. It is a nice location right off I65 with an Applebees within walking distance. I found this very convenient.

Nice people/employees. Very welcoming and helpful. Walking distance to restaurants all around the motel Good value and great out door entry to rooms so that we could park in front of our room with our car. Loved the free USA Today newspaper available In the lobby upon arrival. Attractive room and modern decor

I liked that I was able to get a non-smoking room with a coupon discount that I didn't ask for (maybe it was my Naval Station Activity Gaeta Italy ball cap ;) )!

Quick and easy check-in/check-out. Utilized restaraunt discount without issue. The air conditioner worked great, plenty of hot water. Accepted my motorcycle trailer without issue and had plenty of parking.
