We were on the road coming home over Thanksgiving weekend and the weather was getting pretty bad. We called BW on our cell phone and made reservations for that night w/no problem. The room was very basic but clean . The bed was very comfortable, including the pillows, altho they still use the old quilted bedspreads that are NOT laundered... More

Very good hotel, room was clean, internet worked very well, staff were pleasant. Breakfast was very good with good selection of items including scrambled eggs, bacon and fresh waffles. Pool was out of service for repairs. Hotel needs décor update and room had a slight odor.

1. Fan is old, has huge noise, I cannot sleep deep. Fan start every 30 minutes 2. If turn off fan, no air circulation at all. 3. I can hear noise from other toilets all night. 4. The web page did not reflect that this hotel is so clos to highway. From page, it seems this is a quiet countryside... More

This hotel has the friendliest staff anywhere. The accommodations are excellent and the location is central to everything. The setting is beautiful. You feel like part of the family when you stay at this hotel.

While this motel is only a semi-renovated older hotel, it was very clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was standard but little more. They had make your own waffles, hard-boiled eggs, not very good fruit and assorted breads. The muffin I chose was fair at best. Maybe better to spend a little more and go out... More

We booked a room here with the request that we would have a reasonably quiet room away from the freeway. Instead, we were surprised to be placed in the room closest to the highway. Traffic noise was tolerable, though, since we kept the windows closed. The room itself was immaculate and the staff was cheerful. Pool was closed but we... More

Outdoor entrances next to the freeway. Very clean. Three trash cans, eight pillows for a king size bed. Yes, both are excessive but they made an impression. More quiet than I expected. I like towns and traffic so being near the interstate did not bother me at all. I was awoken maybe twice in two weeks because of the freeway/parking... More

Stayed one night here on a Monday and quick checkin. Our room was on the second floor in the back row. Nice and quiet, very clean room and staff helpful with dining. Breakfast was continental and very clean area. Newspapers provided.

We were most impressed with the friendliness and professionalism of the staff at this site. It is in a great locaion and we regretted that we only had time to stay for one night as there is so much to do in the general vicinity. We plan to come ack for at least a weekend in the future.

I had to be up and out pretty early (6:30am) during my visit. I was pleasantly surprised that the breakfast room opened at 5:30, so I could actually take advantage of it. Very friendly and helpful staff. Decor and facilities are a little dated and worn, but clean and well maintained.
