Just traveling through on my way between jobs as I work construction and stopped in for the night. Glad I did, as this was well worth it. The night clerk was polite and very fast and I think her name was Alicia. I got a great price, the room was super clean and I had no problems getting a few... More

The hotel had been recently renovated the rooms were clean and the bed was comfortable. Restaurants are close by. The breakfast bar was good but could have used more healthy choices. I would definitely stay here again

No complaints on our stay. Everything was clean and as should be expected. They offer smoking and non smoking rooms. Breakfast was basic but fresh. Would stay at again. The pool is centrally located and so are the ice machines.

Ditto Steve K. You can tell the staff takes pride in their work. So happy to have a nice place to lay our heads after a long day on the road and a great breakfast to start the next day. We'll make this a regular stopping place. Thanks!!

We were passing thru and checked reviews on Trip & Yelp and this one was reasonable and nice and CLEAN. Plus, the bedding was very nice.. It also was on $70 which is almost half of the other name brand hotels. Very close to I-65. Another nice thing was Applebee's & Ruby Tuesday is next door. Very nice hotel staff.... More

This was a great place to stop on our trip to Florida. Staff was helpful. It is convenient to the highway and has good options for dinner close by. There was a good selection for breakfast. We would stay there again.

Clean room every time I stay here, friendly service from all the staff and a great breakfast, always. This is a deal for the money. Also it is in a great location, located next to the expressway. With an Applebee's in the parking lot.

Great location but room smelled very musty. Notified front desk when I checked out and they said they would make a note of it. They did have a pancake machine which was really good. Nice to have a breakfast so convenient to room.

Staff was courteous, room was very clean and breakfast was pretty good. No complaints with this motel, I would recommend it to anyone. There was restaurants near by so I could go and get a quick bite to eat before retiring for the evening.
