With the exception of mold around top of bathroom walls(which we did not notice until morning of departure)the overall appearance of the room was fine for the price. House keeping in general was good.

My family and I 'stayed' in a room in this hotel for eight minutes. My son and I each receive more than 50 flea bites. It terrifies me to think what would have happened had we actually spent the night there. Absolutely disgusting!

Don't staythere. Rooms are dirty, roaches, burnt holes in linen. Only good thing was cracker barrel. People we're friendly but did not offer any compensation for oudistres would never stay at it again

The only true positive thing I can say is the price was good. The adage you get what you pay for I guess will apply in this case. First problem with the AC. We finally got adjusted enough that we could sleep. The bedspreads were clean looking, but very stained. The TV remote didn't work. Very inconvenient to get up... More

This is an old motel that needs a lot of repair. We stayed 2 nights, and after the first night, we didn't get wash cloths of hand towels. I'm pretty sure they water down the shampoo, because it took the whole bottle to shampoo my short hair. The continental breakfast was cold. There was a tiny microwave, but you couldn't... More

On our way to our vacation destination, Panama City Beach, FL, we stopped for the night in Athens, AL. There were many hotels/motels to choose from. Having had good experiences with Hampton Inn in the past, we checked there first, only to find they wanted $119 per night for a single room with a king-sized bed. There was the Travel... More

Family Reunion: After reading the other reviews, I was hesitant to stay but family members insisted. I was pleasantly surprised, rooms clean, staff attentive, breakfast was good (waffles, eggs, sausage, cereal, etc.) Convenient location (half hour to Space Museum) and outdoor pool was clean and well maintained. I would highly recommend for an inexpensive stay.

The place is really run down and needs a lot of repairs. I slept there but didn't want to eat the free breakfast.

My husband and I stayed here recently when we had to rest from a long drive home from Florida. This place looks like something out of the 1970's. The big security monitor on the front desk should have been our first clue. Towels that used to be white, a bathroon that reeked of smoke (we asked for non-smoking.) Broken furniture,... More

We arrived late at night on our way up north. We checked in and found a dirty towel hanging in the bathroom and the towels in the room looked dirty. The sink was horrible and the shower head was in need of repair. Bugs were flying around in the room. The breakfast bar consisted of Little Debbie Snack cakes....Do not... More
