Check-in went smoothly; desk clerk (maybe the owner/manager?) was polite. This property seems to be frequented by contractors/laborers temporarily working in the town. Room was typical small motel feel; no frills, but a decent place to sleep for the night. Breakfast was the low point of our stay. Basically cheap brand snack cakes.

I stayed here for my vacation time of 2 weeks. The room was nice and clean. The staff is friendly, helpful and quick to take care of any needs you may have. The hotel is quiet and a little out of the way but has easy access to shopping and restaurants.

My family of 5 stayed here for a Saturday night in early May. The hotel is dated, but the room was clean. We all slept fine. The price was great. We booked through hotels dot com, but could have saved more by booking direct.

The staff went out of their way to help us. The room was clean and simple. No frills. The bed was comfortable. We'd reserved a crib and they made sure that it was in the room and ready before we arrived. They made sure we had bedding for the crib. The hotel had cameras and was very secure.

If you like a soft bed (I Do) you will love these beds.Every room has a mini-fridge and small microwave.

Stayed two nights arrived late and was taken to a non smoking room, that, when the door was opened the smell knocked me over. I requested another room and that one was not as bad but it still had the smoke smell. We even noticed it on our clothes when we came home. The room was OK but the smell... More
